Application Submitted for Cayton Solar Farm

Arcus has submitted a major planning application for Elgin Energy for the Cayton Solar Farm near South Stainley, Harrogate. The development occupies circa 85 ha of agricultural land and would have an installed capacity of 49.9MWp. Arcus coordinated the planning application submission and provided all planning and environmental services including landscape and visual assessment, ecology and ornithology, heritage, flood risk assessment, arboricultural assessment, transport statement, as well as public consultation and pre-application discussions with Harrogate Borough Council.

This is our second recent application for Elgin Energy, following the consent that was granted for Gorse Lane Solar Farm in April, and work continues on a further solar site in Nottinghamshire, which following public consultation will be submitted into planning shortly.
