Through engagement with the Local Planning Authority and Island Roads (on behalf of the Highway Authority) both pre-application and during processing, we assisted in securing full planning consent for the site.
Following this successful outcome, Mayer Brown has supported Wight Farm Energy in satisfying various conditions imposed on the planning consent, including detailed drainage design, heavy goods vehicle traffic routing and HGV swept path analysis. The drainage design was particularly interesting: Due to the high Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and leachate content of the surface water run-off from the silage storage area, which is potentially harmful to the environment but also invaluable in the digestion process, an entirely separate system was provided discharging directly into the storage tanks.
In 2016 Mayer Brown is still undertaking work to update the previous Transport Statement and drainage design to reflect the growth of the site.
