This Environmental Statement (ES) has been prepared by Moray Offshore Renewables Ltd
(MORL) to accompany the consent applications under Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989,
Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 and Marine (Scotland) Act 2010, to construct, operate
and decommission three wind farm sites (Telford Offshore Wind Farm, Stevenson Offshore
Wind Farm and MacColl Offshore Wind Farm). MORL has applied for a Marine Licence for
each wind farm site to allow deposition of infrastructure on the seabed. A single Marine
Licence application has been submitted to support the offshore aspects of MORL’s
Transmission Infrastructure (TI).
An application for planning permission for the onshore aspects of the TI will be submitted to
the relevant authorities, supported by this ES and such further information as is required to
support the planning application.
The consent applications will be determined by the Scottish Ministers, acting through Marine
Scotland Licensing Operations Team (MS-LOT). Onshore consent will be determined by the
Local Planning Authority (LPA) Aberdeenshire Council.
