Wind Generation Appeals Update

    View Authors October 2015

    Please find attached our summary of wind generation appeal decisions issued between 4 September 2015 and 2 October 2015.

    Some facts for you in relation to the summary:

    • 25 decisions have been issued during this time, only 3 of which were allowed
    • 21 related to single turbine projects, 3 of which were allowed
    • 4 decisions related to a larger scheme, all of which were dismissed.

    With regards to the English decisions, these have noted the WMS as a material consideration. In a number of decisions, it appears as though the WMS has played a pivotal role in the outcome, which is extremely disappointing.
