Revised Planning Guidance for Renewables

The government is due to release revised planning guidance for renewables allowing local communities to have more power over proposed developments.

In response to a question from MP Sarah Wollaston calling for the minister to set out the practical steps he was taking to ensure appropriately developed solar farms, Barker said: “Well-sited solar can be great and often is, but inappropriate developments risk alienating public support. That’s why I am very pleased to say that, in the next few weeks, as a result of close work with DCLG, we will be releasing revised planning guidance for renewables that will mean renewable energy doesn’t automatically override environmental protections and planning concerns of local communities.”

“It will make clear that care should be taken to preserve heritage assets and beautiful countryside, including the impact of planning proposals on views and landscapes when it comes to things like solar – in addition to our own sustainability criteria that we are working closely with the industry on.”
