All Lightsource planning applications are managed by our in-house team of planning experts

Our in-house planning team are recognised as industry experts with unparalleled expertise and experience in working with local authorities to obtain planning permission for all our solar projects. We utilise an innovative planning process, starting with a rigorous and detailed site selection where our in-house planners draw upon local expertise to create successful planning applications. We include a comprehensive community engagement programme and long-term management plans to ensure our projects bring about real and tangible benefits.

As part of our plans we often enhance existing and plant new hedgerows, plant new trees and seed wild flowers or species-rich grasses, all of which enhance biodiversity and are great for wildlife. The Lightsource planners work closely with ecologists and landscape consultants to propose the most suitable enhancements for a particular site.

As part of our Community Engagement programme, we also welcome input from local wildlife trusts, conservation groups and enthusiasts in a bid to involve the local community in our plans. For further information on our planning process you can contact the Communications Team on +353 (0)1 685 6263  or get in touch via our contact form.
