Nasty Solar Farm – new application

A new application has been submitted by Push Energy for the erection of two free standing satellite dish on the site.
Details are available on the EHDC website planning page; search for application no. 3/17/0475/FUL or type in Mill Farm.

The dishes are to be mounted on pylons which will be above the height of the existing substation buildings and therefore highly visible.

This application was rejected by a delegated decision of a planning officer but has been re-submitted.

If this application is approved it could prompt an application to expand the site greatly as there will be a large umbrella created under the dishes and it could be argued therefore that installation of more panels would not be detrimental to the existing visual aspect.

Please submit your comments, either on the website above or in writing to Mr. David Snell, Planning, East Herts Council, Wallfields, Pegs Lane, Hertford, SG13 8EQ.
The deadline is 22nd March.
