Community Power Cornwall has been working with the Energy Society to enable a 51% Community Ownership stake in the Mably Solar Proposal.
Application No: PA15/05327
Proposed solar PV development, associated landscaping and habitat creation. To include ground based racking systems, mounted solar panels,
associated infrastructure, fencing and CCTV security cameras at land east of junction between Pilgrims Way and Bunkers Hill, Pilgrims Way, Fraddam.
The application was turned down by the Secretary of State in 2018 against the appeal inspectors recommendation for approval. The project may be reinvigorated once there is a change in the current Political direction.
This has been a particular disappointment for Community Power Cornwall as the innovative scheme design could have set the benchmark for future ground mounted solar PV developments, increasing ecological value and biodiversity whilst enabling clean energy generation and local ownership.
