5MW Solar Farm

Grange Farm, Boyton, Cornwall

We were commissioned to produce a full Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) for a proposed 5MW Solar Farm in Cornwall. Recommendations on the overall masterplan of the site where made at the early stage of project development and we provide detailed mitigation proposals as part of the planning application.

We worked closely with the client, coordinating the required reports including Ecology, Arboriculture and Heritage, among others.

We coordinated a public consultation exercise in order to have as smooth a planning process as possible. Following the granting of planning permission, the landscape team subsequently prepared a Landscape Management and Maintenance Plan for the on-site mitigation prior to the construction of the solar farm.
