Sheraton Hall solar
Preliminary assessments & site design
Discharge of planning conditions
Proposed solar farm at Sheraton Hall Farm, Sheraton, County Durham, TS27 4RD
The proposal involves Lightsource bp funding the development of a solar installation that will have an output power capacity of 49.9MW (Megawatts).
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 with a virtual event, which took place on Wednesday 4th November, in the form of a video presentation 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.
