The Local Plan will include policy used to determine applications for wind energy developments.
Like many other areas of the UK Doncaster has seen increasing pressure over recent years for on-shore wind energy developments and wind turbines as an important source of renewable energy. This background paper sets out the background and evidence base used to inform the draft Local Plan Wind Energy Developments policy (policy 60) and the associated Area of Search for Wind Energy. The proposed Area of Search identifies an area which is potentially suitable for wind energy development, subject to proposals meeting the policy criteria of draft policy 60 and any other relevant Local Plan policies.
