The Rural Solutions planning team have worked with a leading UK solar farm company since 2012. The client’s portfolio includes the largest operational solar farms to date in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
We have so far delivered the client four planning consents for new solar farms in different areas across the north of England. Having worked on multiple projects with the client since 2012, we have secured planning consent for a number of sites, the largest and most recent for a 20MW scheme on a 45-hectare site in Cumbria.
Working closely with the client, technical consultant team and local planning authorities, our team has taken the projects from the pre-application stage, through public engagement and on to full planning applications.
In part due to this investment in the engagement process, plus working with the client to identify suitable sites, we have been able to achieve planning consents under delegated powers in the majority of cases.
