Anyone interested in having their say on the planned Norfolk Boreas offshore wind farm can now register to give their views.

The Planning Inspectorate has opened registrations for feedback about the 1.8GW power station, which would be built in the North Sea around 70km east of Happisburgh.

Sarah Richards, chief executive of The Planning Inspectorate said: "This is an opportunity for people to play a part in the planning process and influence the outcome. We encourage people to get involved by registering as an interested party. By doing so, people will be able to participate fully in the examination of this proposal".

Norfolk Boreas is one of three wind farms planned to be built off Norfolk's coast. The others are Vanguard - which, like Norfolk Boreas, is to be built by Swedish energy giant Vattenfall east of Happisburgh - and Danish firm Ørsted's Hornsea Three, which will lie further north.

Registrations can be made online at infrastructure.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/projects/eastern/norfolk-boreas.
