ScottishPower Renewables and Vattenfall
East Anglia Offshore Wind online consultation
ScottishPower Renewables and Vattenfall are working in partnership to develop the Crown Estate Round 3, Zone 5 scheme, which they have named- East Anglia Offshore Wind (EAOW). The Zone is located 14km off the coast of Norfolk and Suffolk and covers approximately 6000 km2, with a target capacity of 7200MW. The public consultation was launched in January 2010, with an initial information website. Further interactivity was added to the website to become an online consultation in April 2011, which included the ability for users to register as an individual or a stakeholder, a revised navigation and a dedicated downloads section.
Visitors to the online consultation can register to receive email updates and submit any questions, comments or ideas they may have. It is supported by our Open Debate system, which records the feedback from visitors into a secure ‘admin area’. ScottishPower Renewables can log in to the system at any time to see who has registered, send responses to users’ questions or comments and generate reports on feedback.
The admin area can also be used to maintain website content and add news stories; Manage Emails, create Contact Logs, upload and categorise downloads and update a central project calendar.
