Planning & Policy issues

Planning & Policy issues

  • Common Planning concerns
    Although most people are in favour of developing more renewable energy in the UK, on certain occasions, local development has proved controversial.
  • Policy issues
    Policy changes are required at the national and local level for urban wind energy to reach its potential. As well as a more supportive national energy policy and planning policy framework, changes need to be made at the local level with improved local planning requirements. Financial incentives also need altering, to recognise community benefits.
