Renewable Energy Planning Rules Revamped


The Department for Communities and Local Government DCLG earlier this week issued new planning guidance for local councils and authorities, aiming to help them pit renewable energy projects against other environmental concerns in their jurisdiction. Alongside the new guidance, the DCLG issued a statement encouraging local councils to think about the greater environmental impact when issuing planning permission to renewable energy, stating green energy “does not automatically override environmental protections and the planning concerns of local communities”.
