Welcome to Parc Solar Traffwll

Welcome to the project webpage for Parc Solar Traffwll, a new proposed solar farm located on the west side of Anglesey, Wales.

This website contains information about the project, a summary of the proposals, as well as detailed information contained in the draft planning application documents available to download from the ‘Project Documents’ tab.

Parc Solar Traffwll consists of three development areas, two are south/south-west of Bryngwran, and one to the west of Llanfihangel-yn-Nhywyn. The development areas are linked by below-ground cabling, which connects to the grid at Caergeiliog to the west.

We have undertaken pre-application consultation on the proposals with a consultation event in September 2021. Information about the proposals can be found on this website.

This scheme will have an export capacity of circa 35MW – this is equivalent to:

11630

Homes powered

7161

Tonnes of CO2 removed

3818

Cars off the road

The process

Given the nature of this application, and the fact that it will generate more than 10MW of electricity, this project is deemed a Development of National Significance (DNS) and we must apply to the Planning Inspectorate Wales, which will make a recommendation to Welsh Ministers on whether or not to grant planning permission.

Ultimately, Welsh Ministers will decide whether or not to approve the application, however many other parties will have the opportunity to influence the proposals, including host local authority, Isle of Anglesey County Council, as well as local communities and interested parties.

Latest Update

Parc Solar Traffwll Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of Low Carbon) has has formally submitted an application to Welsh Ministers for the construction, operation, management and subsequent decommissioning of a solar farm to the south/south-west of Bryngwran and west of Llanfihangel-yn-Nhywyn on Anglesey.

If Planning and Environment Decisions Wales (PEDW) decides to accept the application it will invite comments from interested parties to be made on the proposal. Comments should be made directly to PEDW via the PEDW website. PEDW will determine the procedure for examining the application once the deadline for representations has passed.

Further information will be available on the PEDW website as the process continues.
