New draft law on wind turbines location 

Credit:  By Tomasz Janas, Michal Motylewski, Agnieszka Skorupinska | Dentons | 2/22/2016 | www.jdsupra.com ~~

Today, 19/02/2016, the Law and Justice Party brought to the Sejm (lower chamber of the Parliament) a project of an Act on wind turbines investments.

The breaking points introduced with respect to the wind turbines investments are:

  • New wind turbines may be only located on the basis of a local zoning plan;
  • The minimum distance between the wind turbine and households or buildings of mixed purpose should be equal or higher than ten-times total height of the wind turbine (mast plus blade);
  • Operating wind turbines which do not meet the distance requirement may only be under maintenance works;
  • Operating wind turbines require obtaining a new type of operation permit from the Technical Supervision Authority (UDT) within one year from the entry in force of the Act;
  • Issued building permits will remain in force under the condition that the occupancy permit will be obtained within 3-years from the entry in force of the Act;
  • Where existing local zoning plans allow for location of wind turbines new building permits will not be issued if the minimum distance requirement is not met;
  • Zoning decisions for wind turbines issued before the entry in force of the Act which do not comply with the minimum distance requirement expire, unless a building permit was issued before laps of this 1-year period.
