Sronagh Solar PV Farm

Project Location   Sronagh, Mountmellick, Co. Laois

The Client sought to secure a 10-year planning permission for the construction of the 6.5 MW Sronagh Solar PV Farm, a solar energy development on a c. 15.26 hectare site in Sronagh, Mountmellick, Co. Laois. The development comprises the provision of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels on ground mounted frames/support structures and includes associated underground cabling and ducting, inverter/transformer stations, HV cabin, communications and storage structures, substations, perimeter (stock proof) security fencing, CCTV security cameras, site access road, landscaping and all associated ancillary site development works.

Tom Phillips + Associates (TPA) provided strategic planning advice to the Client and Project Team for the development of Sronagh Solar PV Farm and led all aspects of the planning application process. This included the Planning and Environmental Report and project management and peer review of expert inputs on Ecology, Flood Risk Assessment and Drainage, Archaeology, Traffic and Access including Outline Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP), Appropriate Assessment Screening, EIS Screening, Glint and Glare, and Landscape and Visual Impact.
