Erection of 21 MW Solar PV Development with associated equipment and ecological improvement works on Land at Town Farm, Town Farm Lane, Kelsale-cum-Carlton, IP17 2RJ

Information can be found on East Suffolk District Councils Planning Portal such as:

Construction Traffic Management Plan:  6.1 Construction traffic
During the construction phase, the solar farm will require delivery of materials, comprising
panels, frames, and concrete footings by HGVs and staff travelling by LGV.
Construction hours would be 07:00 to 19:00 Monday Friday and 08:00 to 13:00 on
Saturdays with no works allowed on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Delivery hours will
differ to these hours as well as at different point in the construction period. Traffic
associated with HGVs will be distributed equally across these delivery time periods.
Traffic associated with workers will typically arrive during the first hour of the operating
period and leave within the last few hours of the working day. On rare occasions some
works will be completed outside of the normal working hours, which means that some
workers may leave later in the evenings. However, this would involve a small workforce
and only occur for short periods.

d. The proposed development is predicted to be constructed over a 6-month period. Approximately 22,263 vehicle movements are expected for the construction of the facility (via A12 & Town Farm Lane). The anticipated construction traffic is detailed by phase in the associated HS, with peak construction period (estimated during month 3) traffic estimates provided below for estimated LGV and HGV 2-way
movements. These estimates have been developed using professional judgement based
on a first-principles approach and are based on a 22-day working month.

This application will be discussed at the Parish Council meeting on 26th January 2022
