Ducklington Solar Farm - Planning
Harnessing the sun
Corylus has successfully co-ordinated several planning applications for solar farms, over many years. Our application for the Ducklington scheme in West Oxfordshire saw councillors voting unanimously in favour of the solar farm.
West Oxfordshire is one of many Councils to have declare a climate emergency and the solar farm will help by avoiding some 7,800 tonnes of carbon emissions and providing enough electricity to power around 16% of homes in the district.
The design retains existing hedgerows and includes new tree and shrub planting, wildflowers and other biodiversity enhancements. It also allows grazing to continue on the site whilst it generates clean electricity.
Corylus prepared and co-ordinated all the application documents, and engaged with the Parish Council throughout the project, and we are very pleased that the scheme has the support of the local community.
Congratulations to everyone who has worked through difficult Covid times to achieve much needed renewable energy.
