Each consortium which has been awarded a Zone Development Agreement will need to apply to the relevant planning body for development consent to build and operate offshore wind farms in that zone. If development consent is granted, the actual timetable for commissioning and constructing an offshore wind farm project within a zone will be for the consortium partners to determine. It is anticipated that the earliest applications for consent could come forward from 2012 onwards; and should development consent be granted, the earliest projects may commence construction from 2014-15 onwards.
