The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on

This is the sub-heading.

An application to build the up to 4.1 GW Berwick Bank, the UK’s largest offshore wind farm, capable of providing enough electricity to power more than five million homes, has commenced determination, SSE Renewables said.

These two paragraphs outline the current status of the project.

Located roughly 38 kilometers off the East Lothian coast of Scotland, Berwick Bank is the largest offshore wind farm planning application to be submitted in the UK to date and one of the largest globally.

The consent process for the onshore elements of the project has now opened, which is being considered by East Lothian Council.

This process runs alongside the offshore consent process, which kicked off in December 2022 and is being considered by the Scottish Government. A final decision by authorities is expected later in 2023.

SSE Renewables hope to deliver first power by 2027.
