Environmental Impact Statement Request Overturned

In July CDN Planning requested and obtained an Environmental Impact Assessment Scoping Direction from the Welsh Assembly Government for an application to develop a 5MW solar farm at St Hilary in the Vale of Glamorgan on behalf of Solarcentury Ltd.  The Vale of Glamorgan Council had requested that and Environmental Impact Assessment be prepared for the development but CDN Planning argued that the proposed development would not generate impacts significant enough to warrant an EIA.

The Welsh Ministers supported our arguments and ruled that no EIA would be required for the site.
