Hi,

Could somebody check these paragraphs?

As far as local planning authorities are concerned, they should include in their local development documents policies aimed to encourage ‘the opportunity for incorporating renewable energy projects in all new developments.' (SOURCE) Specific policies concern areas designated for their environmental or cultural values. Apart from these particular cases, however, local authorities are advised not to hinder any type of development of renewable energy technologies when evaluating applications for planning permission for renewable energy projects.

Are the underlined parts correct? Would they be understood?

Thank you in advance!

This sounds OK to me. I assume the 'particular cases' are 'areas designated for their environmental or cultural values'?

Yes, that's what I meant.

Thank you again!
