Norman Baker, MP for Lewes, said: “I’m pleased that matters are moving forward. This development, if given permission, will create an initial 85 jobs in Newhaven, as well as helping the UK both to become more energy self-sufficient and cut carbon emissions.”
Caroline Lucas, MP for Brighton Pavilion, said: "Following a period of further consultation by E.ON, I’m delighted that the proposals for the Rampion wind farm are now back on the table and hope the project will get the green light.
"This exciting clean energy development could provide secure and sustainable power for a huge number of homes in Brighton and Hove – as well as creating local jobs, slashing carbon emissions and boosting the region’s reputation as a place for investment in green industries.”
