Consultation exhibition for the Cwm Ifor Solar Farm

WSP led the consultation events for the Penyrheol Solar Farm

In 2019, the council declared a climate emergency and has committed to being carbon neutral by 2030. The solar farm is a very exciting development and just one of several innovative initiatives planned by the council to reduce carbon emissions. I’d like to thank everyone involved in the project and particularly members of the local community who took the time to take part in the consultation.
