Gorse Lane Solar Farm Approved

Arcus recently prepared and submitted a major application to North Kesteven District Council, on behalf of Elgin Energy, for the 65 hectare Gorse Lane Solar Farm near Sleaford, Lincolnshire.  Arcus were responsible for co-ordinating and preparing the planning application and supporting technical reports including planning statement, design and access statement, landscape and visual appraisal, ecology appraisal, flood risk assessment, heritage statement and transport statement, as well as coordinating public consultation and pre-application discussions with the Council. Post submission, Arcus tracked and managed the consultation responses to the application, particularly focusing on ecology, landscaping and arboriculture matters, ensuring that consultee concerns were clarified in a timely manner to enable the application to be determined under delegated powers, within the statutory 12 week period.
