KS SPV35 Ltd v. Monmouthshire County Council (UK Planning Inspectorate 2015)

Jurisdiction: United Kingdom


Side A: KS SPV 35 Ltd (Corporation)


Side B: Monmouthshire County Council (Government)


Core objectives: Permission to build solar farm


Summary
KS SPV35 Ltd. appealed the Monmouthshire County Council's rejection of its application to install a solar farm near an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ("AONB"). The Planning Inspector overturned the Council's decision after considering arguments that the slightly revised plan for a solar farm would result in a loss of natural green space or harm to the area's natural character and wildlife. The Inspector conditioned approval of the plan for a solar farm on construction and maintenance of a surrounding boundary hedge of at least three meters in height.
