Policy 17 – Pre-assessed areas for wind energy

Welsh Government

The Pre-Assessed Areas for Wind Energy are designated by Future Wales (the National Development Framework) as areas where there is a presumption in favour of large-scale wind energy development, subject to detailed policy assessments contained within the document. Any scheme would need to be assessed through the statutory planning application processes.

Future Wales is currently being scrutinised by the Senedd before a final version of the document is published in early 2021. These are still draft in nature and are still subject to change before final publication.
