The Proposed Development

In 2016, the UK signed the Paris Agreement, which is a global agreement between nations to reduce global warming, to keep the increase in global temperature to below 2oC above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the increase to 1.5o C.

At a national level, the Environment Act became law in Wales in March 2016 and has targeted an 80% reduction in greenhouses gases by 2020

The delivery of renewable energy projects, such as solar parks, will play a key role in reducing the need for energy derived from fossil fuels, enabling Wales to meet its target for the reduction of carbon emissions. Battery storage supports the move to renewable energy by providing a consistent supply of energy.

Corylus Planning and Environmental Limited, working with Novus Renewable Services Limited, has develop a scheme for a solar park which will generate 5.7MWp of electricity and a 16MWh battery storage facility.

The site is located to the north of the former Maleor Gas Works and to the south of Wrexham Industrial Estate.

The scheme has been developed with technical input relating to biodiversity, trees, landscape, flooding and highways.

We have uploaded all of the draft plans, statements and reports produced to support the planning application to the Documents Library on this website. We have also provided a list of Frequently Asked Questions that you may also find helpful.

We welcome any comments that you may have regarding the proposed development and the easiest way to do this is via the feedback form on this website.
