Rampion 2 Windfarm Expansion: Public Consultation 14th July -16th September 2021
The Rampion 2 public consultation for draft proposals of a windfarm expansion off the Sussex Coast is closing this Thursday 16th September.
Washington PC does not support the current routing proposal ("Route B") which would take the cable pipeline through Washington Village via horizontal directional drilling under the Recreation Ground/Allotment land, and result in additional traffic to already congested local roads. The Parish Council is also seriously concerned about the inappropriate locations of the proposed construction compounds around the village, which is largely in a conservation area within the SDNP. The Parish Council is asking that Rampion robustly pursues all other options to avoid the Village, including the original "Route A."
See the Parish Council's full consultation response at the end of this page and also on the Planning page.
The Parish Council encourages all residents to look at the scheme at:https://rampion2.com/consultation/ and submit your views.
You can respond in 3 ways: by completing the online questionnaire, by emailing Rampion2@rwe.com or by letter to: Rampion 2, Consultation Response, c/o RWE Renewables, Greenwood House, Westwood Way, Coventry CV4 8PB.
