RD Wales and its partner Island Renewables

RD Wales and its partner Island Renewables have received planning permission for its proposed 10MW solar farm at Abergelli Farm near Felindre.The application was approved by Swansea Council’s Development Control Committee on 21 May.

The planning officer’s report concluded that the proposal was in line with local and national policy, and further “The scheme is considered appropriate in terms of its scale and design and would not cause unacceptable loss of amenity to neighbouring properties or surrounding land. There would not be significantly adverse visual impact on landscapes, open spaces and the general locality from the site and there would be no significantly adverse or detrimental impact on the ecology, habitats, highway safety or land drainage in the area”. This conclusion was overwhelmingly supported by members.
