2020 Renewables believes that community engagement with the local and wider community is a vital part of the wind farm development process. By engaging at the earliest opportunity this can lead to constructive dialogue with a view to working towards a wind farm layout and design which satisfies the community as a whole. We like to follow some best practice principles/guidance when engaging with the community;
- Communities should be identified through a process of engagement involving all relevant stakeholders,
- Commit to open and transparent dialogue at the earliest stage possible,
- Engagement with the local community at each relevant stage of the project e.g. early project period, EIA and planning, construction and operation.
