Unfortunately the response to the survey was very disappointing. Only 35 members came back to us, just over 3% of our total membership.

 While this level of response could not be considered representative, of those that did respond:

  1. A small majority thought that solar panels should never be installed on front roofs


  2. A large majority thought that solar panels should be permitted on side roofs with no restriction


  3. A large majority thought that solar panels should be permitted on rear roofs with no restriction


  4. A large majority thought that solar panels on brackets should be permitted
  5. Most people thought that the period and character of a property should be taken into account when assessing applications for solar panels but a number said that this should only apply if a building is listed.

The survey results have been sent through to the Estate Scheme of Management Office.
