Scoping the Project
North Falls submitted a scoping report to the Planning Inspectorate in July 2021. This presented early project proposals and described our development process including how any potential impacts to the existing environment will be assessed. By seeking early comments on the North Falls Scoping Report, the project team aims to ensure that the most robust and thorough environmental statement will be submitted to support our development consent order application in 2023.
The North Falls Scoping Report includes the most comprehensive picture of the project proposals to date. This consultation highlights key environmental and other areas of interest however it is recommended to read that report if you wish to gain an in-depth understanding of the proposed approach and the current proposals from the work to date.
The feedback received on this report from the relevant local planning authorities and statutory consultees resulted in a scoping opinion which is now available to be read here.Scoping Report Scoping Opinion

As the project has not yet been able to provide a lot of detail of the onshore elements of the project due to a lack of grid connection, respondents were keen to receive further details when they become available. Other issues raised here included the avoidance of ancient woodlands and veteran trees, employment opportunities for local people and potential impacts on migrating birds.
