Draft PPS18: Renewable Energy
Annex 1 Wind Energy Planning Issues: Specific Issues
There are a number of issues specific to wind turbine developments that need to be considered when determining an application for planning permission. Where Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is deemed necessary (see paragraph A117
) the potential issues should be covered in the Environmental Statement but, for smaller developments that do not require a full EIA, the Department will often still require some or all of the issues to be addressed through an environmental report to accompany the planning application.
