Proposed solar farm at Lawns Farm, Ballam road, Lytham St Annes, FY8 4NG

Through our initial assessments we have selected the site area shown below, and we’re now undertaking a wide range of environmental assessments to help shape our plans. These include landscape and visual, heritage and archaeology, ecology and more.

Safety is one of our core values, and in order to keep to the standards of community engagement that we’ve set as a company in the current global situation, we’re replacing our physical community consultation events with a virtual event. The Lawns Farm Solar Project community consultation took place on Wednesday 30th June 2021, in the form of a video presentation which can be viewed below, and live Q&A session. Before the event, we sent a press release to the local paper, and an information leaflet was posted to nearby residents.

The proposal involves Lightsource bp funding the development of a solar installation that will have an output power capacity of 20MWp (Megawatts).
