Project Description

Parker Dann assisted with the planning application for the development of the 5 MWp Oving Solar Farm on 18 hectares of farmland near Chichester in West Sussex. Our support included initial advice on the development potential of the land, the appointment of consultants to assist with the project and review of feedback received from them.

Parker Dann also secured the Screening Opinion from the local planning authority – Chichester District Council – that confirmed that an Environmental Impact Assessment was not required for the planning application and produced supporting statements addressing relevant planning policy. We also assisted with the discharge of conditions attached to the planning permission and secured subsequent approval from the Council for the grid connection for the solar farm.
