Extensive feasibility assessments and environmental studies have been carried out looking at the site and SeaGen Wales will submit an application in early 2011 to the Welsh Assembly Government for consent to build and operate the tidal stream array.
It is expected the consenting process may take up to a year during which time a number of environmental bodies will be consulted and the public will get a chance to give feedback on the proposed development.
The application will be submitted shortly together with an Environmental Statement (ES) which provides details of exactly what is being proposed and details all of the assessment work that has been carried out.
Full copies will be available on CD on request for a nominal replication fee. A hard copy of the ES will be displayed in Holyhead Library for public viewing.
