“Our opportunity is now to tell the Council the things we believe the Council should include when drawing up its Scoping Opinion for the developer.  I would encourage any local residents concerned about the development of industrial scale wind turbines to contact South Norfolk District Council and make their views known”.

You should write to: Head of Planning Services, South Norfolk District Council, South Norfolk House, Swan Lane, Long Stratton, Norfolk NR15 2XE.

Your letter should arrive by Tuesday 11 April 2008.

What is a scoping opinion?

A Scoping Opinion is not the same as a planning application.  A Scoping Opinion is a letter sent by the Council to a potential developer in which the Council states what detailed information it will be expecting the developer to provide in any planning application that comes forward, so that the Council can investigate in detail what is being proposed.

This includes matters such as visual impact, noise, proximity to flight paths, archaeological surveys, impact on hydrology, local ecology, agriculture, plant life, animals and birds, as well as issues such as site access, vehicle movements, and technical matters connected with the site.

Before drawing up its Scoping Opinion, the Council asks members of the public what they think are the issues that the Council should take into account.
