58 Planning Application No. B03/2014/0643 Proposed Installation of a 4.99 MW Solar Farm and Associated Development. Bank Lane, Barrow-in-Furness pdf icon PDF 940 KB


Mr Pearse, Principal Planning Officer, Landscape and Countryside presented the report which was an application to Barrow Borough Council for planning permission for the development of a solar farm with a capacity of 4.99MW and associated infrastructure on a 13.5Ha site.  Mr McEwan, local member had at first thought the application was acceptable but now had concerns that glare from the solar panels would impact on aeroplanes using Walney airfield directly opposite the site. 


RESOLVED,       that a holding OBJECTION be raised subject to satisfactory views of the aviation authority.
