Fife Council Consultation - Low Carbon Issues

Fife Council is currently holding consultation on draft planning guidance on low carbon issues.

Draft Low Carbon Fife Supplementary Guidance (June 2018).

The guidance covers the assessment of low carbon energy schemes; sustainable building measures; and air quality assessments.

The guidance aims to provide clear advice and detailed technical guidance on low carbon issues to support the policies in the emerging Fife Local Development Plan.

This document will replace a number of existing guidance documents on wind energy and guidelines on renewable energy and air quality.

The draft Low Carbon Fife Supplementary Guidance updates these existing documents and provides additional guidance to inform the assessment of all low carbon schemes, sustainable building, district heating proposals, and air quality assessments.

The guidance incorporates changes that are required in order to comply with Scottish Planning Policy 2014. It also updates the wind onshore wind energy cumulative impact assessment to take into account wind turbines which have been built and consented since the last guidance was published.

The consultation will run from now until 17th August. You can view it and make a comment www.fifedirect.org.uk/lowcarbonfife
