Britain Remade responds to the government delaying the Hornsea 4 Offshore Wind Farm

Responding the news that the Government is delaying the final planning decision for the Hornsea 4 Offshore Wind Farm, Sam Richards Founder and Campaign Director for pro-growth campaign group, said:

“We may have a new Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, but yet more delays to vital clean energy projects shows how our broken planning system will stop us from becoming energy security and hitting our net zero targets.

While countries cross the globe are racing to install more and more clean energy, in England we’re delaying offshore wind projects and have banned new onshore wind altogether. If the Government is serious about energy security, it needs to drop the ban on new onshore wind in England and speed up the process for all sources of clean power.”
