Renplan secure planning permission for a solar development at a former colliery

Renplan, acting on behalf of First Renewable, have secured planning permission for the solar development of the former Asfordby Colliery, Leicestershire. The development will provide approximately 9MW of energy that will serve sufficient power to serve approximately 2,000 homes. The land is a former open cast coal mine and this renewable energy development was passed by the local planning authority without public objection and with a level of community support including support by the local Parish Council.
