unstar this property answer text <p>Last year the Government’s Clean Growth Strategy, which supports the Industrial Strategy, announced a Local Energy Programme, which supports local actors, community groups, local authorities and combined authorities to develop their own energy strategies and deliver their own energy programmes. Community energy is a key part of clean growth, showing what can happen when groups of people come together to de-carbonise energy in local areas, whilst also investing in these places to bring other economic, or social, benefits. Even small-scale projects can provide a valuable contribution to cutting greenhouse gas emissions.</p><p>The National Planning Policy Framework expects local planning authorities to recognise the responsibility on all communities to contribute to energy generation from renewable or low carbon sources. New tests were introduced into planning in 2015 to give local people the final say on onshore wind planning applications in England, which delivered on a manifesto commitment made by the previous Government. Planning for onshore wind turbines in the UK is devolved outside of England.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has two different financial penalties that can be imposed. The first is the Civil Penalty. Where our enquiries show that a claimant has failed to provide accurate information as part of their benefit claim or in connection with an award of benefit, they have not taken reasonable steps to correct the error and their action has resulted in an overpayment of over £65, DWP currently charges a £50 Civil Penalty.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Financial Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Monetary value of Civil Penalties</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014/2015</p></td><td><p>£216,450</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015/2016</p></td><td><p>£356,550</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016/2017</p></td><td><p>£463,200</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017/2018</p></td><td><p>£427,750</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018 YTD</p></td><td><p>£330,400</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p /><p>The Second type of financial penalty is the Administrative Penalty, which may be offered to a person as an alternative to prosecution. Currently the minimum amount of the Administrative Penalty is £350 or 50% of the recoverable overpayment, whichever is greater, up to a maximum of £5,000.</p><p> </p><p>It is not possible to provide the total value of administrative penalties imposed by DWP in the last 5 years as this information is not readily available and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.</p>
