Scottish Planning Policy SPP 6 Renewable Energy
1. This SPP sets out the national planning policies for renewable energy developments that planning authorities should consider when preparing development plans and when determining planning applications. It identifies the issues that Scottish Ministers will take into account when considering renewable energy policies in development plans, and when considering applications for planning permission which come before them on appeal or call-in. The policies in this SPP will also be applied to the authorisation of on-shore electricity generation schemes under Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989.
