Micro generation red tape to be cut
Good News, Ruth Kelly, the UK's Communities Secretary, has announced that the need for planning permission for micro-renewables will be removed in many cases. I'm very pleased to here this - a neighbour of mine built a massive garden house without needing planning permission but you do need it for some solar panels - a daft situation.
In the meantime Conservative leader David Cameron has had to take his much vaunted micro wind turbine down as it was installed a whole metre from where it should have been - to avoid ripping his chimney off methinks. Bet he wishes he'd waited a few months.
