In 2014 we carried out a number of surveys and assessments prior to submitting the planning application to ensure any impacts of the solar farm are minimized. These included a Heritage and Conservation Area Impact Assessment, a landscape and visual impact assessment, a habitat survey, a transport assessment and a flood risk assessment.
