In Flintshire, Wales, UK, Stephenson Halliday’s constraints-led design approach supported developing a solution to enable a solar site with battery storage to be developed on a former landfill site where ground contamination risks (and potential remediation costs) were high.

Our approach enabled the identification of associated risks and facilitated the success of a financially viable project. We completed necessary landscape and visual assessments, coordinated other environmental and traffic appraisals, attended public consultation events and completed the planning statement. We continue to support our client through the planning determination process while applying the same successful approach to other sites on its behalf.
