Ballochy Solar Consented


Ballochy Solar Consented

On 15th September 2020, at the Virtual Development Committee meeting, members of Committee at Angus Council unanimously agreed to the approval of a major planning application at East Ballochy by SPR for a Solar, Battery Energy Storage System and an approximate 7.5 km private wire grid connection, covering a total developable area of 161.63 hectares.


Arcus was delighted to have led the planning submission on behalf of SPR. Arcus provided a range of planning and environmental services to support this planning application for a 39.9 MW Solar farm, 10 MW BESS and the approximate 7.5 km private wire grid connection.


Arcus was heavily involved in the public consultation back in November 2019 and addressed key issues as part of the planning application including landscape and visual, traffic and construction. Arcus also worked proactively with relevant consultees to ensure any concerns were appropriately addressed through the application process.
