Site suitable for a solar power farm?
firstname.lastname@example.org Provisional plans for a solar power farm at Rolvenden have been put before the borough council.
Green Energy UK Direct Ltd is currently investigating the suitability of a solar farm at Mill House Farm in Beneden Road.
The site has been identified as having good potential for photo-voltaic generation, due to its location and relatively high levels of exposure to the sun.
The application to Ashford Borough Council asks the council whether or not any future planning application needs to include an Environmental Impact Assessment if or when it is submitted.
It is not a planning application and Ashford council will not, at this stage, be considering the planning merits of the proposals.
A response is expected by February 20 at the latest.
Full details of the proposals can be viewed at planning.ashford.gov.uk
