A Variety of Views on the Impact of the Bowhay Farm Solar Park
The person I'm assured I need to speak to in the planning department of Teignbridge council still hasn't replied to any of my phone calls or my email. With this evening's meeting with Lightsource looming I thought I'd pose one of my planning related questions here, to see if anyone else knows the answer. On page 4 of Lightsource's request for a screening opinion it states:
In effect the potential impacts associated with any solar farm are primarily limited to the visual changes. In discussion of this particular development, it is considered that the site may (depending on extent of mitigation) be visible to three residential buildings, and from two small areas of public highway. In the context of the wider landscape, this is not considered a visual impact that extends beyond the local context.
Here are some views that I snapped on my mobile phone earlier this week, taken in the direction of the proposed 54 acre Bowhay Farm solar park from three different "small areas of public highway" in the vicinity. Is this in any way significant?
