Consultation on updated proposals on plans for the solar and storage project in North Kesteven, Lincolnshire have been announced today (11 December).

Backed by EDF Renewables UK and Luminous Energy the Springwell Solar Farm has the potential to generate 800MW of electricity.

Having initially opened for consultation at the beginning of this year, with a secured grid connection from the National Grid, the second stage of the public consultation will present updates following feedback from the community and stakeholders. Changes include an overall reduction in the size of the area proposed for the solar panels, with proposals on land predominantly owned by Blankney Estates.

The consultation will run for six weeks from 11 January 2024.

EDF Renewables UK’s director of storage, solar and private wire, Matthew Boulton said: “We are grateful to everyone who shared their views with us earlier this year. Feedback will continue to be important as we refine our proposals for Springwell. I encourage everyone to get in touch, meet with us and share their views during the consultation.”
