Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon Scheme up for Comment

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is asking for people’s views on further information submitted by the company behind the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon.

Tidal Lagoon (Swansea Bay) Plc project would see a 9.5 km long sea wall built in Swansea Bay, between the Rivers Tawe and Neath. This will generate electricity and house a visitor center and educational and sporting facilities.

But before it can be built, the scheme will need a marine licence from NRW.

The further information submitted provides details on how the scheme could affect fish and how those effects could be monitored and offset.

Richard Siddons, Head of Technical Services for Natural Resources Wales, said: “The Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon Development is a world first, and if we decide to issue a marine licence to allow it to go ahead, it will be the first of its kind issued by Natural Resources Wales.”

Following the conclusion of pre-submission discussions between the applicant and our advisers we have received further information regarding the potential impact to fish and have decided to advertise this information,” added Siddons.

It is a particularly complex application, and we are continuing to assess the expert information we have received. Once we are satisfied that we have fully assessed all the relevant information, we will announce our decision,” said Siddons.

Deadline for comment submission is September 16, 2016.

The further information documents can be downloaded from NRW site.
