Crumps Yard and Flint Landfill Solar Farms
Meeting: 17/07/2018 - Cabinet (Item 220)
As detailed in the recommendation.
Councillor Bithell introduced the Crumps Yard and Flint Landfill Solar Farms report which sought approval for the installation of ground mounted solar PV at both sites.
The strategic case had provided evidence that the solar developments aligned with key Council, regional and national carbon reduction/economic growth policies and strategies and facilitate and contribute to the achievement of key goals and targets. The financial modelling had shown that the projects were viable.
The outline business cases were attached as confidential appendices to the report.
(a) That both Crumps Yard and Flint Landfill Solar Farm Outline Business Cases (OBC) be approved and authority be delegated to the Chief Officer (Planning, Environment and Economy) to lead the delivery of the projects;
(b) That the Chief Officer (Planning, Environment and Economy) be authorised to establish a dedicated Project Board to monitor delivery of both projects;
(c) That the Chief Officer (Planning, Environment and Economy) be authorised to submit the requisite planning applications relevant to the delivery of each project and to procure a contractor; and
(d) That authority be delegated to the Chief Officer (Planning, Environment and Economy) in consultation with the Council’s Section 151 and Monitoring Officers, to engage external legal/technical/planning support, as required and that budget is allocated for this purpose.
