The policies for Renewable Energy in the 2015 Local Plan for West Dorset are: COM11. RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT i) Proposals for generating heat or electricity from renewable energy sources (other than wind energy) will be allowed wherever possible providing that the benefits of the development, such as the contribution towards renewable energy targets, significantly outweigh any harm. In addition, permission will only be granted provided: • any adverse impacts on the local landscape, townscape or areas of historical interest can be satisfactorily assimilated; • the proposal minimises harm to residential amenity by virtue of noise, vibration, overshadowing, flicker, or other detrimental emissions, during construction, its operation and decommissioning; • adverse impacts upon designated wildlife sites, nature conservation interests, and biodiversity are satisfactorily mitigated.
