Planning Permission

We believe that our unique approach of combining expert planners with experienced renewable energy engineers is the key to our high success rate. It results in planning permission only being sort for technically sensible schemes and minimises costly changes to planning applications and re-submissions later in the process.

Key wind turbine technical considerations

Noise propagation modelling Shadow flicker


Our noise propagation modelling can help to ensure that everything is done correctly to give the maximum chances of planning success.

Shadow flicker

Shadow flicker would affect the chances of obtaining planning permission if it was likely to occur for more than a few hours per year.


Redcotec can produce all the necessary reports, technical drawings, datasheets, designs, photomontages and landscape assessments that may be required for a successful planning application.

We also have an extensive network of environmental professionals that we can draw upon if the planning authorities require specialist studies such as bird, bat or invertebrate surveys.
