Response to solar consultation published

Following the Evolution Power statutory consultation events and the November Parish Council meeting, our response to the current Stone Street Green Solar proposal has been sent and can be found in the Planning section on Solar.

Over 50 members of the public attended the November Parish Council meeting to share their reaction to the proposal with Councillors.   The Parish Council response incorporates resident views that were brought to the meeting.

The project contact email:  can be used to send feedback to Evolution Power, in whatever form you wish. Responses must be in by 11.59pm tomorrow, Tuesday 29th November.

This is the first of many stages for this application.

Proposal for solar farm off Church Lane

IMG 0275

On Monday EDF Energy presented a project proposal to the Parish Council.  It involves the creation of a large solar farm on land to the west and south of the converter station and current solar farm on Church Lane, as outlined in red above.  The land outlined in green is proposed to be a battery storage site and will be subject to consultation in the future, but is included here to give residents a complete picture.

It is our understanding that this is a first round of public consultation. You can view a virtual public exhibition and take part in Q&A sessions this Saturday 17 July, 2:00pm and on Thursday 22 July, 7:00pm or visit an exhibition online at the project website:
If you do not have internet access and would like to view hard copies of the materials, please contact the EDF team using Contacting us directly on or 0800 0194 57
The developer is currently collecting feedback and intends there to be a second round of public consultation in the Autumn, ahead of a formal planning application, which, if approved, will lead to a 9 month build and an operational site sometime late 2022/early 2023.
