Solar panels shine through planning constraints

September 2011

The planning team at Fisher German’s Ashby office has achieved planning permission and Listed Building Consent for 260 photovoltaic (PV) panels, on behalf of a farmer in Linby, Nottinghamshire.

The 60kW PV panel system, which is to be located on an existing steel portal framed agricultural barn, will produce electricity from a renewable source to supply the farm.

The site of the PV panels is located near to a number of Listed Buildings including a large farmhouse, farm cottage, brew house, mill barn and threshing barn. The site is also located within the Nottingham-Derby Green Belt and the Linby Conservation Area.

Despite these constraints, Gedling Borough Council agreed that the proposed PV panels would result in an appropriate form of development within the Green Belt and would not have any detrimental impact on the openness of the Green Belt.  The development would not have any undue impact upon the setting of the nearby Listed Buildings, the character of the Conservation Area nor the amenity of any neighbouring residential properties.

The planning application was approved under delegated powers by Gedling Borough Council on 26 August 2011. The associated Listed Building Consent was achieved on 5 September 2011.
