WWF-UK has warned the government that it should be careful not to "stifle" the onshore wind industry just to silence a "vocal minority".
Nick Molho, the head of climate and energy policy at WWF-UK, said:
Polls consistently show that the public support renewable energy and want more of it - yet parts of the Government seem determined to put up barriers to its development.
The Prime Minister says that he wants the UK to win the low-carbon race, but too often his own side seems to be holding him back.
We'd also hope that the Government will be consistent on its approach to planning and impose similar rules on other parts of the energy sector, such as onshore shale gas development.
