POLICY QL30 - Renewable Energy

In considering development proposals for the generation of energy from renewable sources, the District Council will balance the advantages of such renewable energy generation against its impact on the local environment. Such development will be permitted where:-

  1. the proposal, including any associated transmission lines, ancillary plant and buildings and access roads are sited to minimise impact on the landscape and have no significantly adverse effect on the character and surroundings of a settlement, nature conservation interests or any heritage designations; and
  2. in the case of wind turbines and other renewable energy projects or installations, provision is made for the removal of the facilities and the reinstatement of the site should it cease to be operational for any reason.
