The Scottish Government and Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) are currently consulting on important policy and technical guidance which has potential implications for the future of wind energy development in Scotland:
- Scottish Government Draft Scottish Energy Strategy: The future of energy in Scotland (due 30th May 2017)
- Scottish Government Onshore Wind Policy Statement (due 30th May 2017)
- SNH Technical Guidance on the Assessment of Wild Land (due 7th April 2017)
To ensure that the landscape profession continues to play an important and influential role in relation to future wind energy policy and development in Scotland, the LIS will be providing formal responses to these consultations and welcomes the opinions and contributions of LIS members in preparing these responses.
To facilitate a member led discussion on these consultations in advance of the SNH consultation deadline, the LIS is organising an initial evening meeting at:

on Tuesday, 21st February 2017 (6 – 8pm)
