Selsey RNLI have applied for permission to put solar panels on the roof of their new lifeboat station.

The plans are part of an ongoing £1.7m project to create a state of the art all weather lifeboat station which began earlier this year.

The photovoltaic panels are intended to help power a ground-source heat pump already constructed at the new station to provide eco-friendly underfloor heating.

Documents outline a variation of condition form to the orginal application, complete with a fee.
