Environment Impact Assessment Screening
Undertaken in virtually in early 2021.
Submission of Planning Application
The application was submitted to Bassetlaw District Council and Newark and Sherwood District Council and the applications can be viewed HERE and HERE respectively.
Assessment and Determination of Planning Application
The application was accepted in December 2021.
Is expected to take place in early 2024.
Tuxford Road Solar Farm will provide renewable electricity for distribution to the National Grid via the substation at High Marnham. This project will generate energy each year of the proposed 40 years of operational life, while also providing significant carbon dioxide savings when compared to generation of electricity by non-renewable sources.
The proposals include battery storage which will allow energy to be stored on site at times when grid-demand is lower and exported at times of higher demand to ensure no energy is ‘lost’ and help balance the National Grid.
Comprising approximately 120 hectares of land, there are no statutory landscape, heritage or ecological designations on site, as part of our site surveys and further assessments we will be considering these matters carefully in developing our proposals for consultation.
The development forms a temporary (40 year) use of land that is easily reversed at the end of the operational life. A scheme of landscape and ecological improvements will be prepared to support the application, ensuring the project provides a biodiversity net gain.
Construction access is off Tuxford road and is expected to take 7 months.
