Scottish Eco FriendlyHouses

The Scottish Government are set to relax planning laws to encourage eco friendly home improvements, such as the addition of solar panels, wind turbines and other renewable devices, as part of their plans to reduce emmissions by 80 per cent by 2050.
At present, many improvements require planning permission which can prove to be a lengthy and costly process. But under the new scheme planning permission will be granted automatically. There are some provisos. For example, to qualify for exemption solar panels must cover no more than 60 per cent of total roof area, ground and water source heat pumps must be hidden and wind turbines must be at least 100m away from the nearest property.
