Community Consultation Method

Future Energy Landscapes is an attempt to develop, trial and refine a methodology that can produce an outline energy plan for a given community from insightful, detailed and mature discussion on low carbon energy infrastructure, in the absence of the threat of imminent planning applications.

It is a cooperation between CSE and the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) in which we designed a new, deliberative community engagement methodology, based around two workshops that were separated by a phase of reflection. The methodology was trialled in Congresbury, Somerset and Moreton in Marsh, Gloucestershire.

A design and rationale report can be downloaded here.

A more in-depth look at the responses of people in Congresbury and Morton in Marsh can be downloaded here.
