1. The document appears comprehensive and well-reasoned
2. The recognition that landowners need to realise the potential of their land in a variety of non-traditional, non-agricultural ways is welcome - preferred locations can no longer exclude all countryside although the proposed controls will be important, especially screening to address the concerns about "glint and glare".
3. Whilst this SPD specifically addresses large-scale installations, it would be good to see some of the controls suggested applied to domestic installations. These are often a blight on the street scene and of questionable economic or environmental impact.
