The information requested is not held by the Department at this time.

The Department maintains the Renewable Energy Planning Database (REPD), which tracks the progress of new renewable energy projects, including onshore wind projects, as they move through the planning system. The database is updated and published on a monthly basis. An update for June 2017 will be published shortly on the Department’s website at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/renewable-energy-planning-database-monthly-extract

It should be noted that the REPD shows projects that have applied for planning permission in the previous month or earlier for projects with a capacity greater than, or equal to, 1MW. Therefore, planning applications that were submitted in June may appear in later monthly REPD updates.
