'We are pleased to announce that on 21 December 2022, the Planning Inspectorate (PINS), acting on behalf of the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) accepted the Development Consent Order (DCO) Application for Mallard Pass Solar Farm, which means that it will now move forward to the Pre-Examination stage (see further details below). Mallard Pass Solar Farm Ltd. submitted the DCO application to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) on 24 November 2022.

Today, on Thursday 05 January 2023, the Mallard Pass Solar Farm project team are inviting members of the public to look over the DCO Application and consider whether they would like to submit a Relevant Representation to PINS.
