Planning applications submitted for solar farms, Saron

Two planning applications were submitted in April 2013 for solar farms in Saron, Ammanford by RD Wales in conjunction with development partners Island Renewables.

The first application is for a 5MW scheme on land north of Dyffryn Road. The second scheme is for a further 5MW on land south of Saron Road, known as Pen-y-cae. Both schemes have suitable points for connection to the electricity grid on site, and both schemes will be developed in such a way as to allow grazing by sheep to continue. It is proposed to work with nearby Saron School to provide educational materials for pupils to learn about solar energy.

The planning applications were accompanied by detailed environmental studies focussing mainly on landscape and visual impact and ecology, prepared by planning and environmental consultants The Landmark Practice.
