Talks open on 800MW UK PV site




Elements Green has launched a first stage of community consultation on plans for Great North Road Solar Park in Nottinghamshire, England with a potential generation capacity of 800MW


The developer is seeking feedback from the communities across the site areas, as well as engaging with local planning authorities, interest groups and statutory consultees.


This first stage of consultation will run until Tuesday 27 February 2024.


Elements Green will be holding a series of in-person and online exhibitions, providing opportunities for the community and key stakeholders alike to find out more information about the proposals and provide their feedback.


It will also be holding eight events during the first stage of consultation, this includes six in-person events and two online webinars, between 29 January and 10 February.


Great North Road Solar Park project director Mark Noone said: "Our plans for GNR Solar Park will align with those set by the British Energy Security Strategy, which aims to increase the UK’s solar capacity fivefold by 2035.


Due to its proposed generation capacity being over 50MW, GNR Solar Park is classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project.


This means that Elements Green will make an application to the Secretary of State for the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero for a Development Consent Order, which we anticipate will be submitted in spring 2025.
