Pegasus Group was appointed to provide planning, landscape and environmental services for an application for a 15MW Biomass Power Plant at Game Slack Farm, near Fimber in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
During the initial preparations for the scheme we provided feasibility advice in order to prepare the application for the rigors of the planning system. Our in-house Landscape Design team provided a detailed landscape mitigation strategy which served to pre-empt potential issues arising in the post-submission phase.
The scale of the proposal determined the statutory need for an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). This was compiled and presented by our Environmental Team who conducted an EIA scoping process to identify and agree the necessary components with the local authority.
In the early stages of the process Pegasus Group carried out pre-application public consultation exercises including hosting and managing public workshops and the production of a dedicated website with detailed informative material, along with key contact details.
The availability of in-house specialists in key policy areas of planning, landscape and environment, as well as close relationships with sub-consultants, enabled Pegasus to alleviate any potential objections. The outline application was approved by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and we have been instructed to proceed to reserved matters.
