Low Carbon consults on 400 MW solar site in the UK




Low Carbon is consulting on refined proposals for a 400MW solar project in Lincolnshire, UK.


The proposals for Beacon Fen Energy Park also include 600MW of battery storage.


The statutory consultation period will run for six weeks from 22 January to 3 March and include a series of in-person events and webinars for stakeholders and communities to attend to find out more information. 


Network infrastructure will also need to be built as part of the project which will link to the Bicker Fen substation. 


An underground cable route to connect the energy park to the substation is proposed for land east of Heckington, while a new, bespoke access road is being proposed to reduce the impact on local roads. 


James Hartley-Bond, director at Low Carbon, said: "Speaking directly with local communities and stakeholders has been a core part of our approach throughout the development of Beacon Fen Energy Park and we are looking forward to presenting more detailed and up-to-date plans at our statutory consultation. During our early (non-statutory) consultation last May and June, local people gave helpful information around traffic and local wildlife. We look forward to hearing from them again first hand."
