Abstract
All local authorities will receive planning applications for renewable energy sites. Some local authorities have provided us with such data, from which we have selected only approved and/ or operational sites. We have also received separate files of data showing renwable energy sites - both as point and polygon, and we have attempted to merge all of this data together to form a national dataset.

Statement
This dataset was amalgamated, optimised and published by the Spatial hub. The following quality assurance checks and corrections are carried out on the data: - Polygons are not dissolved/ aggregated by key name and local authority. - The minimum polygon area allows in the data is 5 square metres - Checks for invalid geometry types - The maximum angle for any spikes is 3 degrees - Any duplicate geometry is removed from the data - Duplicate key names for polygons are not removed - Polygons with no key names are not removed - Checks for basic geometry and self-intersection All corrections and issues are captured and communicated via Quality Assurance report maps. Please contact spatialhub@improvementservice.org.uk for more details.
