Proposals for offshore wind farms (OWFs) inside Round 3 zones, including relevant supporting projects and infrastructure, should be supported.
- The Crown Estate holds information on the boundaries and owners of offshore wind farm lease and agreement for lease areas.
- OWF proposals may wish to draw on the findings of the zone appraisal process to demonstrate how other activities and the environment have been taken account of in proposals as well as taking into account GOV2.
- This policy enables development of OWFs in Round 3 zones in preference to other conflicting activities but does not preclude co-location of OWFs with other activities in line with GOV3.
