Planning & Environment

I’ve blogged about the Scottish Government launching their revised carbon calculator to be used by wind farm developments on peatland.

Interestingly, the Scottish Government clearly state that the carbon assessment will be a material consideration in their determination of section 36 applications – and, by implication, also in the determination by local authorities of planning applications for wind farms.

Not really a new material consideration, but certainly an indication of the growing sophistication for assessment of environmental impacts of developments.
