Renewables planning advice: index

Index of Scottish Government planning publications advising on the construction of renewable energy structures such as onshore wind turbines, hydro schemes and woody biomass.

Please note: while much of our online advice about onshore wind turbines remain relevant and now supports Scottish Planning Policy, any passages referring to 'spatial framework', 'spatial planning' and 'areas of search' are now out of date. Advice about the process for preparing spatial frameworks for wind farms has been removed. No decision has yet been taken about when updated advice will be published.
