    View Authors August 2015

    Please find attached our summary of wind generation appeal decisions issued between 7 July 2015 and 7 August 2015.

    Some facts for you in relation to the summary:

    • 46 decisions have been issued during this time, only 10 of which were allowed
    • 38 related to single turbine projects, 7 of which were allowed
    • 3 decisions related to two turbine projects, none of which were allowed
    • 5 decision related to a larger scheme, 3 of which were allowed

    It is worth noting that Inspectors are now referring to the WMS dated 18 June (and the subsequent amends to the PPG), but only to say they hey have considered the WMS/PPG but that this has not altered their conclusions.

    If you would like to discuss any of the decisions or any renewable energy projects that you are involved with, please do not hesitate to call me.
