SMALL AND EMBEDDED TURBINES

We attempt to list all turbines over 30m (100 ft), but this is becoming increasingly difficult.

This is due to the numbers of applications coming forward, fuelled by the very large subsidies paid under the Feed-in Tariff system of subsidies, which are paid from electricity bills.

Many of these applications are not advertised and are often quickly decided by a planning officer under delegated powers, rather than by a democratically accountable planning committee. Many are now decided without an Environmental Impact Assessment.

INTRODUCTION


SIZE

Small/domestic turbines up to c. 30.5m (100 ft) in height are not recorded.

POWER OUTPUT AND LOAD FACTORS

Where available, the Generator ID of operating schemes is quoted, with a link to the Renewable Energy Foundation’s Large Scale Renewable Generators database. This gives official figures for outputs and achieved load factors.

‘SECTION 36’ APPLICATIONS

Schemes of 50MW capacity or over - even if they would only produce a fraction of this amount in operation - are determined by a government minister according to Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 (or the equivalent Section 57 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997). This was originally intended as a mechanism for major projects that were considered to be in the national interest. It is questionable whether it was intended as a mechanism for developers to try and sideline the local democratic planning process with wind power projects having a theoretical maximum capacity of just over 50MW, and which would produce as little as 20% to 30% of that headline capacity in operation.

Some developers regard Section 36 applications as standing more chance - they are, after all, being decided by a Minister who is also responsible for implementing current energy policy - than would smaller schemes with local planners who are more inclined to reflect the concerns of their local communities and the local economy. A public inquiry can be triggered by the formal objection of a local planning authority, but the developers know very well that cash-strapped local authorities and poorly funded community groups are then forced to find large sums of money in order to secure legal and expert representation. At the end of the day, the Secretary of State can, but seldom does, override an inspector’s recommendation.

GLOSSARY

Screening’ = preliminary, informal consultation with planning authority on prospects for an application and whether an whether a full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) or more limited Visual Impact Assessment (VIA) would be required for an application.
Scoping’ = more formal pre-application consultation with planning authority on the scope of an application: which consultees should be approached and the planning authority’s specific requirements for an EIA and/or VIA.
Proposal of Application Notice (PAN)’ = the Scottish Government has requires 12 weeks of pre-application public consultation (PAC) before a major planning application is lodged. A PAN starts the clock on this process.
Live Application’ = planning application submitted.
Appealed’ = proposals may be appealed by the applicant after refusal or for ‘non-determination’, when the applicant decides to trigger an appeal because the local planning authority has not determined the application within the prescribed time period (normally 12 weeks). Objectors have no right of appeal if a decision is approved, they can only seek to overturn the decision by going to the High Court (in England) to seek a judicial review of the decision on procedural grounds. Appeals may be heard by written submission, public hearings or a full-blown public inquiry.
Called in/Recovered’ = decision removed from a Planning Inspector to the Secretary of State, or Scottish equivalent. There are a number of reasons set out for this action (see here).
PI’ = Public Inquiry; quasi-judicial hearing to examine the application before a Planning Inspector (‘Reporter’ in Scotland). For Section 36 schemes, an objection from a LPA is needed to trigger a PI.
LPA’ = Local Planning Authority.
NYD’ = Not yet determined.

Rejected and lapsed/withdrawn proposals are included below because, even after refusal, locally or at appeal, they can reappear in slightly amended form as re-submissions. Wind developers are notoriously unwilling to take no for an answer when they have spent some money on a proposal. These sites also indicate areas of developer interest.

Title colours match application status: orange - scoping/pre-planning; red - in planning (applied/appealed); green - approved; black - operating; grey - refused, withdrawn, lapsed etc.; a blue background signifies offshore schemes which are not counted in regional capacity targets.
