A new solar energy farm south of Redcar and the A174 has been granted planning permission despite concerns over its impact on so-called heritage assets.
Members of Redcar and Cleveland Council’s regulatory committee went against a planning officer’s recommendation to refuse the plans by EDF Renewables UK at a location near to Yearby village.
The officer’s report had concluded that the proposed development was a harmful imposition upon the agricultural landscape, which constituted the setting of nearby conservation areas in historic Kirkleatham and Yearby, along with two listed farmsteads in the vicinity.
The development, which will be adjacent to the crematorium and memorial park at Kirkleatham, will feature an array of ground mounted three metre high solar photovoltaic panels, and will be accessed via a new entrance being created off Fishponds Road and the B1269.
It will also include up to a hundred CCTV cameras mounted on four metre high poles and be surrounded by 2.4 metre high fencing around its perimeter.
