We have in-house agricultural land ownership data including records of over 10,000 land parcel and owner contacts. We also have relationships with many farmers and landowners through our farm consultants. Our experts can advise farm businesses on the implication of diversification projects on mainstream farming.
Since 2010, ADAS has specialised in finding & assessing sites for a range of energy projects and placing them with third-party developers to deliver a solution to the landowner. We have also assisted individual landowners to go down the self-development route by carrying out site feasibility, planning and grid connection applications and project managing system installation.
Our unique selling point is our reputation in the agricultural community combined with our technical site finding and feasibility expertise and planning capability. We can demonstrate, via a track record of successful projects, that our approach is effective and results in the identification of viable projects.
In the past six years, we have successfully delivered land referencing work for a range of clients including:
Site-screening is carried out using ADAS’ in-house GIS mapping tool which provides information on constraints like Agricultural Land Classification (ALC), flood risk, green belt, environmental/historic land designations, residential properties and can import additional data such as grid network asset locations. We can generate bespoke maps to show information to suit.
The project team have used the screening tool since its initial development in 2010, to screen more than 1,000 sites for wind, solar PV, hydro, PPG and battery storage schemes.
Where required for individual projects, we can create new or combined layers for specific project criteria.
