This report provides evidence and discussion of good practice in engaging the public about on- and offshore wind farms. It gives an overview of the planning regimes in different countries across Europe, focusing on the opportunities, timing, and procedures for community engagement. We explore case studies of wind farms which have used various good practices, highlighting what worked well and what can be learnt from them. The report is intended to inform thinking on the part of the Scottish Government, wind farm developers and wider stakeholders in the wind industry, about how uptake of good practice can be encouraged.
