Major Changes from the First Consultation

During Autumn 2023, we held a first consultation on our early proposals, and we appreciate everyone who took the time to respond. We carefully considered all of the feedback that we received, and made several significant changes to the project design, including:

  • Removing solar panels around the villages to protect views and the historic setting
  • Removing solar panels around homes close to the project boundary, and developing bespoke solutions to reduce visual impact
  • Creating environmental enhancement areas to protect local wildlife
  • Creating new public footpaths to increase recreation and access across the site
  • Providing potential locations of key infrastructure, including batteries, substations and the river crossing.

Information Events

During the consultation period, we will host several information events in the local area where you can view our materials and meet with members of the project team to learn more about our updated proposals for One Earth. If you cannot attend an event in person, we will also have two webinars as well as a virtual exhibition you can attend anytime.

We welcome your feedback on our proposals. You can submit your written feedback from 29 May to 23 July 2024. Please note, previous materials listed the end of the consultation as 9 July, but we have extended by an additional two weeks to account for the national elections and ensure everyone has sufficient time to take part. Please submit your written feedback through any of the methods below by 11:59pm, 23 July:

Next Steps

After the consultation ends, we will review the feedback we have received. This feedback, along with results on ongoing environmental and technical assessments will help shape the updated proposals that we submit in our DCO application, early next year.
