    The Government will Consult to Relax Planning Laws around Onshore Wind Farms in England

    December 8, 2022 - Gulf Oil & Gas


      With the news this evening that the Government will consult to relax planning laws around onshore wind farms in England, renewables developer Vattenfall has issued the following comment:

      Vattenfall's Head of UK Onshore Development, Frank Elsworth, said:

      "If this is a genuine move which will put onshore wind on a level playing field with other infrastructure in England, it will send a very positive signal that the Government is serious about harnessing the benefits which onshore development can unleash for the environment , the economy, and communities.

      "Vattenfall's experience in England, Wales and Scotland has shown that people respond positively when they see the benefits which development brings in the form of investment, jobs, and support for local businesses. There doesn't need to be a one-size-fits-all approach to community engagement - the most successful projects are those that enable communities to help shape the way the wind farm will benefit the surrounding area."
