What the project will look like
RES is proposing to build a renewable energy power station fuelled by biomass at Battleship Wharf, North Blyth. This is what the project may look like:
As part of the planning process, RES has investigated the effects that the proposed power station may have on the local landscape. This study is called a Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) and it forms part of a wider Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) that also considers impacts on wildlife and people. In close consultation with the local authority, 19 locations around Battleship Wharf were identified as being suitable viewpoints for visual assessment. These 19 locations are marked on this interactive map.
Photomontages and wireframes (3D computer models) based on the design for the power station have been created from these viewpoints to show how the project might look in scale with existing surroundings. Please click on this interactive map to see how the proposed biomass power station may look from each viewpoint.
A comprehensive account of the LVIA and all the other environmental impact assessments undertaken for the North Blyth Biomass project is provided in our Environmental Statement (ES). You can read a Non-Technical Summary of the ES here.
