Guidance on Biomass Energy Developments

On 26th January 2006 the Infrastructure Services Committee approved the use of supplementary planning guidance on Policy Inf\8 Other Renewable Energy Sources.

This is the second of three planned guidelines on renewable energy technologies, entitled “Use of Biomass Energy in Aberdeenshire – Information Requirements and Policy Interpretation”. The guidance is intended to provide potential applicants with all of the information they need to submit and progress an application for a biomass energy development, ranging from small domestic schemes to large scale industrial plants.

This guidance has been developed as part of Aberdeenshire Council’s Renewable Energy Strategy, which was agreed in December 2004 and which aims to promote the generation of heat and energy from renewable sources.
