We were appointed by INRG to support a planning application for a 5MW solar farm at Thruxton near Andover, Hampshire.
A planning application was submitted in 2014. To support the planning application, we produced a Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP). This set out information on the forecast construction vehicle trip generation, and provided a strategy to minimise the effect of construction traffic on the local highway network.
As part of the CTMP, we prepared access drawings and swept path analysis to demonstrate that safe access could be achieved, and engaged with the local highway authority to agree an appropriate access route for the construction period.
In addition, we liaised with Highways England to resolve issues surrounding glint and glare, with could affect drivers on the A303.
The solar farm was granted planning permission in July 2015. The solar farm has since been constructed and is now operational.
