Latest news on the Bill

This Bill is expected to have its second reading debate on 30 March 2012.

This Bill was introduced to Parliament on 17 November 2010 under the Ten Minute Rule. This allows an MP to make his or her case for a new bill in a speech lasting up to ten minutes. An opposing speech may also be made before the House decides whether or not the bill should be introduced. If the MP is successful the bill is taken to have had its first reading.

 

This Bill is a Private Member’s Bill. These are often not printed until close to the second reading debate. If the text is not yet available here and you wish to know more about this bill, please contact its sponsor, Chris Heaton Harris.

Summary of the Bill

The Bill would give powers to local authorities to specify in their neighbourhood development plans (defined as in the Localism Bill) a 'recommended best practice set-back distance' between onshore wind turbines and habitations. It includes recommendations for this set-back distance, calculated as a multiple of the turbine rotor diameter.
