Planning advice for businesses installing micro renewable energy schemes

The Council recognises the importance of support to businesses wishing to relocate or expand in the District. Where a planning proposal creates employment opportunities then no fee will be required. This arrangement, originally put in place in 2012 for one year, has been extended until the end of March 2015.

Using renewable energy sources can offer a wide range of benefits, including cost savings for your business.

We want to encourage the generation of energy from renewable sources and support the delivery of appropriate schemes across Wychavon. New permitted development rights mean that businesses can make some alterations to their premises without requiring planning permission. Further information can be found in the advice note below:
