The Areas of Search and exclusions identify early Sectoral Marine Planning considerations for suitable offshore wind development. These locations will be progressed through a Sectoral Marine Planning exercise to determine areas of seabed, that can be leased by Crown Estate Scotland, for offshore wind projects that will be replacing traditional energy sources for oil and gas platforms/infrastructure. Following a public consultation (August 2022 to October 2022) the areas have been modified and republished in the INTOG Initial Plan Framework (February 2022)
