The scheme is currently at the EIA Screening stage and work is progressing on the final site and design in anticipation of a planning application submission. ● Zetland Group is assisting on a geothermal heat energy development in Cornwall and continues working alongside developers in selecting sites to accommodate compressed air energy storage infrastructure making use of vacant salt mines in the North-east of England. Research & Development In October of 2019 Zetland Group secured planning permission with Exeter University to commence geological exploration works of the Jurassic Strata 800m below ground level. Zetland Group then managed an innovative build process adopting reinforced matting (as an alternative to the more traditional crushed and compacted stone compound) to minimise the duration of the construction phase, reduce the scope for environmental disruption and facilitate site restoration. Residential & Commercial Development Zetland Group’s team of experienced and chartered town planners work with you to deliver planning consents for developments of any size and complexity. In addition to the preparation, submission and management of standard planning applications, we also act as advocate and planning witnesses at appeal, help to secure certificates of lawful development and willingly provide representation against enforcement.
