Comments of Kingston Seymour PC 1. The document appears comprehensive and well-reasoned 2. The recognition that landowners need to realise the potential of their land in a variety of non-traditional, non-agricultural ways is welcome - preferred locations can no longer exclude all countryside although the proposed controls will be important, especially screening to address the concerns about "glint and glare". 3. Whilst this SPD specifically addresses large-scale installations, it would be goo

The Planning Committee of the Town Council considered the initial guidance document which relates to solar photovoltaic arrays. Members were unable to make specific detailed comments but wished to thank NSC for setting out appropriate criteria for these large scale energy installations.

Dundry Parish Council has no specific comments to make about this document. However, councillors would be interested to know whether, given the relatively recent introduction of this type of development to this area, there will be any mechanism in place for reviewing the planning guidance it once it has been in use for a while.

"to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 80% by 2050, from a 1990 baseline" Could you please give us what is the baseline? This is a great initiative, any plans to include Housing associations in North Somerset? Thank you and keep up the good work! Patty Shayler @LatinZest Guatemala

This chapter provides good national context to solar energy, but could benefit from more local context. In addition to local planning responsibilities, figures on local solar energy could be included. For instance; annual figures for installed capacity, solar insolation and/or organizations involved in the solar energy supply chain. It could also be combined with the following 'Introduction' chapter to avoid overlap of content. An overarching suggestion we have for chapters using hyperlinks wou

We support the Council's commitment to reducing carbon emissions and supporting renewable and low carbon forms of energy generation (par 1.3) and we strongly agree that their development must be appropriately sited (par 1.7). In particular, we are pleased to see that the Council has included the following important points which we would like to endorse: · Solar PV arrays should avoid areas that are undeveloped (par 1.3).

We very much welcome this document as it clarifies the criteria by which solar PV arrays will be assessed and approved by the Council. It clearly lays out the considerations needed for landscape, visual and biodiversity potential impacts.
