Notice Publicising a Statement of Community Consultation
Rampion; WIND FARM
More information about the project can be found on our website

Notice is hereby given that Rampion Extension Development Limited ("RED"), a joint venture company comprising RWE, a Macquarie-led consortium (comprising Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 5, the Green Investment Group and the Universities Superannuation Scheme) and Enbridge, is promoting the development of an offshore wind farm project known as Rampion 2.
Rampion 2 is a proposed expansion of the existing Rampion Offshore Wind Farm, located in the English Channel off the Sussex coast. The broad offshore area of search being reviewed for development, which is adjacent to the existing wind farm, was initially established by the Crown Estate who own and lease the seabed. The Infrastructure being proposed as part of the development includes:
* Up to 116 wind turbines, up to three offshore substations and an export cable search area to bring the power to shore at Climping Beach

* An underground electricity cable connection from Climping Beach to Bolney, Mid Sussex, where the electricity would need to connect into the National Grid transmission system

* One new substation located near the existing Bolney substation, which would be required to transform the power from the wind farm up to the required voltage (400kV), in order to connect to the transmission grid

About the application process Rampion 2 is classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) under the Planning Act 2008. This means that RED must apply to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for a Development Consent Order (DCO) for statutory powers to build and operate the project. RED will submit the DCO application to the Planning Inspectorate who will only accept the application on behalf of the Secretary of State for examination if it complies with the relevant statutory formalities and standards. About the Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC)
The Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC) sets out how RED intend to consult with local communities within the vicinity of the project about the proposed development, and the preliminary environmental information which will inform the Environmental Statement, during the pre-application process. It provides details on how the project information can be accessed and how to respond to the consultation. Under Section 47 of the Planning Act 2008 RED has a statutory duty to consult the local community about its proposals in accordance with its SoCC.
The SoCC is available for inspection free of charge on the project website

Paper copies of the SoCC are available for pickup (subject to availability) from 7 June until 12 July 2021 at the following publicly accessible facilities:
