The Swansea Bay tidal lagoon project was given a Development Consent Order in June 2015. A marine licence has not yet been awarded by Natural Resources Wales. The responsibility for deciding whether to grant a seabed lease rests with the Crown Estate.

The Government’s negotiations with Tidal Lagoon Power Ltd are commercially sensitive and it would not be appropriate to comment on the latest proposal.
