    Abstract

    The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) (2012) is a new piece of legislation that is intended to reshape the current UK planning laws. This study investigates the anticipated effects of the barriers to the deployment of wind power in an economic, social and legislative context. In order to achieve this primary research study was undertaken together with a review of current research.

    The Primary research indicated that the NPPF encourages investment into renewable energy sourcing and suggests that more efficient wind power harvesting could significantly contribute towards meeting the government’s 15% target. The findings of this study, although rigorously collected and analysed, are limited due to the small cohort of professionals participating in the study namely 40 professionals from industry. Resulting research explores the validity of the NPPF’s presumption that favours sustainability. Findings from this study are reflective of available information up until April 25, 2013.
