Wind energy SPD
The wind energy supplementary planning document (SPD) (PDF File, 428kb) describes our approach to wind energy development in Newark and Sherwood.
It was adopted on 26 March 2014 and now forms part of the planning application process in our district.
The SPD provides detailed guidance on how we’ll consider planning applications for wind energy schemes, including:
- pre- and post-application stages
- how proposals to develop schemes will be assessed
- relevant policies within the District Council’s core strategy and allocations and development management (DPDs).
The following documents support the wind energy SPD.
