The application has arrived

The proposed 190 acre site is indicated in black – mid left. Viewed from Ball Hill

BUT YOU ONLY HAVE 21 DAYS TO MAKE YOUR PLANNING VIEWS KNOWN TO DORSET COUNCIL ABOUT THE PROPOSED SOLAR DEVELOPMENT

The developers (North Dairy Farm Solar Park Limited c/o BSR Energy Limited) have now applied for full planning permission to use 190 acres of productive farmland as a solar power station at North Dairy Farm, between the Conservation areas of Mappowder, Hazelbury Bryan and the village of Pulham, in the Blackmore Vale North Dorset. 

The industrial sized electricity generation plant would be in full view from the nationally protected Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and on agricultural land which is prone to regular flooding. The proposed site is in a valued landscape that Dorset Council have considered requesting be designated as a National Park. It is also within the impact zone of the Blackmoor Vale Commons and Moors Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Rooksmoor Copse Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and Alner Gorse Butterfly Reserve.

The proposed site is in an area which Dorset Council considers to be very highly sensitive to large scale development.

The application P/FUL/2021/01018, and its support documents, are available in the Dorset Council’s planning register.  

PLEASE NOTE. When visiting the planning file/register you first have to ‘accept’ the Council’s Copyright and Disclaimer conditions in the small box at the bottom left of their web page.

We will shortly add to the information and guidance, published on the main  SHV Web page, about making your material planning points known to the Council. In the meantime, please also visit the: ‘Writing to the planners’ and ‘Why refuse the application’ pages
