Planning Policy Changes – onshore wind – have your say

The Government has launched a consultation to explore how Local Planning Authorities can demonstrate local support and respond to the views of their communities when considering onshore wind development in England.

Under the proposals, planning permission would be dependent on a project being able to demonstrate local support and satisfactorily address any impacts identified by the local community.

We encourage you to read the consultation documents and respond with your views by clicking the link below. These proposals may result in changes to the National Planning Policy Framework. The consultation period ends at 11.45pm on 2 March 2023.
