Scottish Government Good Practice Principles for Community Benefits from Onshore Renewable Energy Developments

1. Do you consider that the revised Good Practice Principles (GPPs) will ensure that communities continue to benefit from renewable projects in a manner that is appropriate for the current and future context in which projects are developed?

2. The revised GPPs promotes a more flexible and evidence based approach to discussions about community benefit, with the focus on creating a lasting legacy. Do you agree with this approach?

3. The revised GPPs will continue to promote community benefit of the value equivalent to £5,000 per MW, however at the same time recognising that some renewable energy businesses will seek to offer flexible packages of benefits for new developments. Do you agree with this approach?

4. The revised GPPs now includes guidance on developing a community action plan. Is there any additional details that you consider should be included?

5. Do you have any other views on the revised GPPs?
