The company behind the proposed Atlantic Array offshore wind farm has announced it is delaying submitting its application to the Planning Inspectorate.

RWE npower renewables wants to build the wind farm in the Bristol Channel off the coast of North Devon.

Today it said it has decided to make its submission in spring 2013 as opposed to the original date of December 2012.

The company said this would ensure it could give full consideration to all the feedback generated by their consultation on the proposed wind farm.

Craig Harwood, Atlantic Array Development Manager said: “The latest consultation period closed on August 31 this year, but we received a number of responses from statutory bodies, interested parties and the public after this date.

“In order to give reasonable consideration to all the responses we have received, both during the consultation period in the summer and afterwards, we’ve decided to submit the planning application during the spring of 2013. This will mean we can consider all of the feedback thoroughly before submitting our application. We would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to join in with our consultation on the Atlantic Array Offshore Wind Farm.”

If the wind farm is permitted it will be built in the Bristol Channel, 14 kilometres from Woolacombe, and comprise up to 278 turbines reaching 165 metres in height.
