Adur Valley solar farm would provide renewable electricity for distribution to the Local Distribution Network (DNO). This project would generate energy each year of the proposed 40 years of operational life, while also providing a substantial carbon dioxide savings when compared to generation of electricity by non-renewable sources.
Comprising approximately 42 hectares of land, there are no statutory landscape, heritage or ecological designations on site. The grid connection is located next to the site via the 33kV over head lines which the solar farm will be connecting into.
The development forms a temporary (40 year) use of land that is easily reversed at the end of the operational life. A scheme of landscape and ecological improvements will be prepared to support the application, ensuring the project provides a biodiversity net gain.
Access to the site will be using existing access from the B2135.
