If you are part of a community environmental group, you may wish to respond to the latest Government consultation, which closes on 7th July.
In the British Energy Security Strategy, the government is committed to developing local partnerships for onshore wind in England, enabling supportive communities who wish to host new onshore wind infrastructure to benefit directly.
This consultation is seeking views on:
- improving the way developers and communities engage when an onshore wind site is proposed in a local area
- whether improvements can be made to the system of community benefits so that communities directly benefit from cheap, clean, secure power
