HW Planning have been at the forefront of the development of Ireland’s growing solar energy industry. To date our staff have coordinated planning applications for 35+ no. solar farms across Ireland, with a cumulative output in excess of 1000 MW. We offer our clients a complete planning service comprising site selection and feasibility assessments (using Geographical Information Systems analysis), community engagement, formal pre-planning and design team management in the preparation of planning applications, as well as the preparation of planning appeals, where necessary.
Our team delivered Ireland’s first full planning permission for a solar farm within the statutory 8-week period, an achievement we have subsequently replicated across a number of other sites. We pride ourselves on a positive partnership approach with local planning authorities and the delivery of well designed and sensitively placed solar farms in rural landscapes.Back
