The Wervelender Policy Document (2011) states where wind energy is desired, or is required under certain conditions, or is undesirable. A concentration area is indicated on Goeree-Overflakkee. This concerns: zones linked to large-scale infrastructure (dams, dikes) and large-scale dividing lines between land and water in the southern part of the province. According to the Wervelender Policy Document, this placement area is also ideally suited as a concentration area for wind energy (wind farm), namely the peripheral zone of Goeree-Overflakkee. This area is considered as a preferred location, with special attention to spatial quality, including sufficient views. Safeguard areas are Natura 2000 areas, the EHS and protected natural monuments, due to ecological values. The head of Goeree-Overflakkee, with the coastal dune area valuable for nature and recreation, and the Delta waters around the island are thus protected from wind turbines.
