The BBC reports that Thanet Council has backed the Ramsgate wind farm proposal, the world's biggest wind farm, which will provide electricity for up to 750,000 homes.
London Array's scheme will see up to 271 turbines sited 12 miles off Ramsgate, enough to meet the electricity needs of 750,000 homes.
The Danish-made turbines would be assembled at Ramsgate port where the concrete foundations would also be made creating at least 800 jobs
Chief executive of Thanet District Council, Richard Samuel, said if the project went ahead a new quay would have to be built in Ramsgate to enable boats to be loaded.
He estimated that it would cost about £10m but said there would be no impact on council tax payers.
