Solar Farm, Trowse

Lanpro secured planning permission for a 16 MW groundmounted solar farm for Island Green Power.

The development covers around 49ha and provides enough power for 4,700 homes per year. The site contains a Scheduled Ancient Monument and is located within a landscape protection zone. These constraints had to be incorporated into the layout of the solar farm to ensure minimal impact was caused.

The local planning authority considered that the development constituted EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) development. Lanpro managed, co-ordinated and prepared the Environmental Statement required to support the application.
