ScottishPower Renewables has added an additional phase of consultation for its East Anglia TWO and East Anglia ONE North offshore windfarm projects.

The latest consultation phase runs until October 29 and will investigate the potential of locating the onshore substations for the projects on the Sizewell Estate land as an alternative to the proposed site north of Friston.

ScottishPower Renewables will also hold four public meetings this month to provide updates and further information of the proposals. The meetings will be held at Leiston (Sizewell Sports and Social Club) on October 9; Friston Village Hall on October 10; Knodishall Village Hall on October 12 and Thorpeness Country Club on October 15.

David Walker, development director at ScottishPower Renewables, said: 'Residents will be able to come along to public council meetings we are holding, or view the plans on our website or at libraries and public buildings across Suffolk.'
