An MP representing Norfolk parishes and towns set to be affected by the construction of two giant wind farms off the county’s coast has expressed delight with recent decisions taken by the firm behind the proposals.
Britain faces an energy crisis. And Happisburgh faces an erosion crisis. We need investment in renewable energy and we need investment in coastal defences. The proposed new wind farm off the north east Norfolk coast offers hope on both fronts.
Thousands of jobs, billions of pounds of investment and green energy for millions of homes - business leaders today called on the region to embrace the chances offered by building the world’s largest offshore wind farms.
