Onshore wind energy

Our Approach

We support onshore wind farms in the right locations. Our role is to help identify the right locations and to provide advice on each application. We strongly encourage a plan led approach to wind farm development. As a result, we have published guidance on Spatial Planning for onshore wind turbines - natural heritage considerations.  PDF document The guidance is aimed at planning authorities, but includes useful information for developers and other stakeholders involved in the planning process.

Further guidance

There is a range of guidance available which can help developers and consultants to design and assess wind farm proposals:
