To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S4W-24001 by Alex Neil on 21 January 2015, whether it has made an assessment of the impact on achieving renewables targets if the maximum planning fee for wind farm developments is raised to the same level as applied in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Answered by Alex Neil (04/02/2015):

As part of that consultation comments were invited on a draft Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment based on the proposed changes. Responses included some concern from industry that the proposed changes could adversely affect the viability of development projects.
