Planning application submitted for solar farm, Abergelli Farm

RD Wales, in conjunction with development partners Island Renewables, submitted a planning application on 26 January 2013 for a 10MW solar farm at Abergelli Farm near Felindre, Swansea. The site is located close to a Western Power Distribution substation, on land that is currently grazed. The scheme is intended to contribute to farm diversification whilst still retaining the land in agricultural use.

The planning application was accompanied by a range of site specific studies prepared by planning and environmental consultants Parsons Brinkerhof, including ecology, landscape and visual impact, and flood risk.
