            RESOLVED – Recommended that this application is approved.

            DECISIONS:

  1. 23/00846/STVAR  – Variation of Condition 3 (approved plans) of planning permission 21/02335/STPLF – Construction of a 49.9MW Solar Farm, underground cabling, 18 inverter substations, installation of perimeter fencing (up to 2.5m high) with access gates and 176 CCTV cameras/infra-red lighting on steel poles (up to 3.5m high steel poles) and 2 temporary construction compounds; construction of a grid compound consisting of substations, control rooms, transformers, cabling and fencing; construction of a storage compound consisting of 24 battery storage containers, 24 PCS units and 2.5m high perimeter fencing and associated grid infrastructure and associated works to allow for minor design changes to battery layout to reflect a more efficient and optimised design for construction At Land South of Creyke Beck Substation 4875 Park Lane, Cottingham.  (Albanwise Synergy) Granted

                  Councillors visited the proposed locations for the Dogger Bank South     

                  substations. Feedback to be sent to RWE.

Zone 4 Substation

The proposed substation in Zone 4 (Bentley) is situated in a rural Hamlet and within Rowley Parish. The Parish Council unanimously support the residents and strongly object to a substation being built in this location. This will have a significant and detrimental impact on the residents of Bentley, there will also be harm to the visual amenity in an area of high landscape value. The sheer amount of land required for this project will have a sizeable impact on local farmers.

Cable Corridor

2 Landfall sites suggested from the coast, one being Skipsea, bringing the cables in, and route 3 being a preferred option which will come in from the north side of Bentley to the suggested site compound. Why hasn’t Hull City Council been used as a preferred option – Hull City Council have a list of Brownfield Sites, one being significantly and less damaging to residents to the Creyke Beck (National Grid Sub Station).

Screening

You are consulting with arboriculturists? –  you need to consult with the residents, as they are the ones directly impacted. Their views matter!!     Screening of a 27m high building with a high-pressure gas line in the vicinity is significant and requires attention to detail.

We Strongly object against a taller building. The building would need to be a low as possible in the land to reduce the visual impact.

Traffic

Roads and traffic around Bentley, coming in from the north side of the site will increase traffic east & west. The proposed Zone 4 will have a detrimental impact on local farmers, and tourism, a camping and glamping business will be harmed to a point where the viability of the business will be in doubt.

There is no mention of any compensation for residents or any scheme to support cost of living when the project is already identified as 4 years minimum with capacity for 4-7 years of construction and a 30-year expected lifespan.
