Briefing note – June 2023

Developing Local Partnerships for Onshore Wind in England

Insights for local authorities and community organisations: how to respond to the current consultation on developing local partnerships for onshore wind in England. 

In May 2023, the UK Government launched a consultation on ‘developing local partnerships for onshore wind’. The consultation is led by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) and sets out proposed changes to community engagement and community benefits for onshore wind. This current consultation has not been accompanied by any update on the
proposed changes to planning policy.

This briefing note aims to support local authorities and community organisations to submit their own response to the consultation. It outlines what the consultation process involves, the key issues raised that might affect local and community energy organisations, and Regen’s views on how to respond to the consultation most effectively.

We are also interested in hearing your views and using these as examples to bolster the response that we are writing from Regen’s perspective. Please share your views with Rebecca Windermer, senior project manager.
