Best Practice Guidelines for Local Government Approval of (Solar) Photovoltaic Installations

This Project evaluated the current procedures being followed by local governments around Australia for installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems in urban areas. It also examined relevant Planning and Solar Access regulations which impact on PV. It resulted in the production of the Best Practice Guidelines below.

The information was compiled via discussions with Councils, PV installers, State Government agencies, Solar City managers and others. Internet Surveys were also used and these were publicised via Local Government Associations and other interested organisations.

Funding was provided by the Australian Government’s Low Emissions Technology and Abatement – Renewables Program.
