Pollards Solar Farm – Construction and Operation


Construction works will take approximately nine months to complete and will be carried out in a phased manner. The main site equipment is relatively small, and so does not require specialist vehicles or road closures to allow deliveries to site.

Operation & Maintenance

Once the Site is constructed and commissioned, the Proposed Development will then begin to generate electricity. The solar PV panels will continue to generate electricity for up to 40 years. The Proposed Development will be monitored remotely and will not require any permanent staff to be located on site. The Proposed Development has low maintenance requirements and as such only low levels of operational traffic will be required from time to time to service the installation.

Ongoing Land Use

During the operational life of the Proposed Development, sheep grazing can be undertaken on areas of the site with large areas of habitat enhancements being provided, which will ensure the  ecological benefits of the scheme are realised.

Next Steps

The Planning Application is currently under consideration with Wealden District Council (Planning Reference No: WD/204/2617/F) and representations on the scheme should be sent into the Wealden District Council Planning Department, noting the above Reference Number.
