Natural England and JNCC advice on key sensitivities of habitats and Marine Protected Areas in English Waters to offshore wind farm cabling within Proposed Round 4 leasing areas 2019


This document provides high-level advice in relation to potential cable routes associated with the Round 4 seabed leasing for offshore wind offered by The Crown Estate. The document specifically includes advice relating to marine features and Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) that are likely to be highly sensitive to pressures associated with offshore wind farm cabling.

Aspects of the advice can be equally applicable to wind farm turbine locations, whilst noting that turbine installation will provide additional pressures for consideration.
