ScotWind leasing launch delayed

The Crown Estate Scotland has announced that it is pushing back the date of the earliest possible launch for ScotWind leasing to July 2019. It announced the updated timeline on 29 January, pushing back the lease launch from the original April 2019 timescale, which had been announced in November 2018.

The Crown Estate Scotland said the final timings of its leasing will be linked to Marine Scotland’s preparation of a Sectoral Marine Plan and that it will not launch leasing prior to July “even if information on the draft Plan has been published before then”.

Crown Estate Scotland said it would give a further update on its intended timings in April.
