Solar panels refused at Kirkstall Brewery halls of residences

By John Baron

‘Detrimental’ plans to install solar panels at the Kirkstall Brewery halls of residences off Broad Lane have been refused planning permission.

The panels would have provided power for hundreds of students living in Abbey House, Walker House, Musgrave House, Poplar House, Olive Mount House, Grove House, Elsworth House, Graham House, Monkwood House and Oakhouse residences.

But council planners said the proposals failed to meet planning policies and added: “It is also concluded that the proposed western section of solar equipment would be detrimental to the adjacent residential accommodation.”

Applicant Cloverco hoped the new panels will make the buildings more energy efficient on the 8.7-acre canal-side site, which caters for more than 800 students.

The plans, documents and reports can be read in full here.
