Solar park permission depends on archaeological talks
Anglesey Council says an application for a major solar panel park at Bodorgan Estate has been approved, with the condition that talks between the developer and the local authority continue with the Gwynedd Archaeological Planning Service, to determine whether there are historical relics on the site.
The planning permission will be released once these talks have been resolved.
A solar energy park - one of the biggest of its kind - has been approved by Anglesey Council's Planning Committee today. 64,000 panels generating 15 megawatts of power could now be put-up on a 75-acre site on the island's Bodorgan Estate.
Developers say the project could generate enough electricity to power 4,500 homes annually and connect to the National Grid via existing overhead lines.Anglesey's planning officer had recommended allowing the applicant, Bodorgan Environmental Management Ltd, to install the panels.
The site is currently used for silage and grazing sheep.
