Draft Low Carbon Fife Supplementary Guidance
This consultation is closed.
Purpose of consultation
Fife Council is consulting on new supplementary guidance on low carbon issues which will support the policies in Fife Local Development Plan (FIFEplan). The consultation will run from 18th June to 17th August. We would like to hear your views at www.fifedirect.org.uk/lowcarbonfife
Fife Council already has approved planning supplementary guidance 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.
