Service : Planning for all types of renewable energy developments
The UK is subject to extremely challenging international energy targets. The Government is committed to increasing the proportion of energy we use from renewable resources from a baseline of 2.25% in 2008 to 15% of all energy consumed in transport, heat and power generation from renewable sources by 2020.
The Landmark Practice has been involved in the renewable energy sector for many years, providing the expertise required to bring forward development, from initial feasibility through to planning consent. We helped to deliver planning permission for a total of 12 large wind turbines at Avonmouth, for Wessex Water, Bristol City Council and The Bristol Port Company. We provide specialist technical advice to Helius Energy to support delivery of consent for a 100MW biomass fuelled electricity generating station, and to numerous Solar PV developers across southern and south west England.
Landmark can provide site appraisal and feasibility studies, planning applications, EIA screening and project management, community engagement and work to enable discharge of planning conditions. As well as this practical experience we also offer training to local planning authorities, to help them to better understand the technical implications of renewable energy development. The quality of our work is recognised by clients, receiving authorities and professional bodies: Landmark won the Royal Town Planning Institute Environmental Planning and Protection Network Award in 2007 and was Runner up Energy Champion at the Regen SW Green Energy Awards in 2009.
With our extensive experience of planning in the renewables sector, and integrated in-house technical support from other key disciplines, Landmark not only provides a complete high quality service, but can also deliver more cost effectively than many of our competitors.
