Renplan is proud to announce planning permission granted for a 5MW solar development in Gloucestershire. Within close proximity to the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), careful regard was needed to ensure the proposed development was well sited and well screened. A suitable position, well screened from the AONB by a railway embankment and vegetation cover in between helped minimise visual impacts. The proposal gained a good level of community support and only three resident objections being received to the planning application.
This development makes a significant valuable contribution towards compliance with the country’s legal obligations to reduce our CO2 footprint. The amount of renewable energy being produced by the development will be approximately the equivalent required to power each of the residences within the Parish (approximately 1,200 homes).
