Solar Farm, Buckinghamshire

Allen Pyke Associates were appointed to undertake an LVIA and prepare landscape proposals to accompany a planning application for a 3MW solar farm on a 7.5ha site near Ivinghoe in Buckinghamshire. The project was located close to an AONB and following discussions with the local authority landscape officer, a series of potentially sensitive viewpoints were identified. Proposed planting will contribute towards mitigating any impact from certain views as well as providing landscape and ecological enhancements. The project recently received planning approval.
