Open Letter to Pickles on Planning Policy for Renewable Energy

Dear Eric

On a recent recovered appeal in Fenland the Inspector included a summary of official government statements on energy policy.

Your decision letter stated their have been more recent statements.

Indeed their have been many, by the PM, DPM, junior and senior ministers in DECC and DCLG.  All have been contradictory.  None have been set out as agreed coalition policy.

So then what is the official government energy policy on which you base the need for renewable energy schemes in weighing decisions?

I should note that it was stated in the commons that the recent guidance document did not present a change in policy, so what is the change in policy referred to?
