Wind Power Projects to be Fast Tracked

It may become easier to build more wind power in Sweden. The government is proposing to scrap the requirement for detailed plans and planning permission if the wind power facility has been approved under environmental law.  

The local authorities will still be able to reject projects that have been approved, but the government would have the right to override those decisions, should the project be deemed of significant national importance.
