A Foreshore Lease application was first made to the Department of Planning, Housing and Local Government in 2006 and updated information subsequently submitted in 2009, 2012 and 2013. We are currently updating the engineering design and environmental information and plan to submit a planning application in 2021. For the onshore works, planning permission will be required and it is expected that the appropriate process will be for the application to be made to An Bord Pleanála.

innogy has applied for a licence under the Foreshore Act to undertake further surveys of the seabed and to install buoy mounted equipment to provide data on weather and sea conditions. The information collected will be used to progress the engineering design and to inform the ongoing environmental assessments required as part of the consent process. Consent of this Foreshore licence will enable innogy to undertake further site investigations and data collection; please note that this is not the final planning application for the project.
