Harbour Farm Solar Farm on Havenside, Consultation Event Tuesday 26 July 2022

CONSULTATION: Hedon Town Hall Tuesday 26 July 2022 from 4pm – 7pm.

Public Consultation at Hedon Town Hall regarding the following:

A PRE-PLANNING application report has been submitted for a 70ha (173acres) development on Havenside, Hedon which would create a solar farm. The proposal, by multinational company Grupotec, would lead to the construction of ground-mounted solar panels spread across six agricultural fields with a total generated energy output of 42MW.

The proposal has been the subject of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) scoping report commissioned by the developer and submitted to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Find out more about the planning application at the East Riding Public Access website and search for reference: 22/01545/EIASCO.

Thank you to Councillor Sarah Rommell for letting Hedon Blog know about the consultation event. Also, Councillor Jason Brindley sent us a copy of the consultation flyer from Grupotec although we did not pick this up until this morning. The flyer did contain an email address and a website for those seeking further details about the project.

Contact harbourfarm@grupotec.co.uk for more information about the project.

  2. I couldn’t get to the event yesterday as I was away, but my co-Ward Members were present. No doubt they will update me in the next few days. The planning process will follow.
    In simple terms, it seems we have two opposing points of view.
    On the one hand, we have the potential loss of valuable agricultural land.
    Balanced against this is the production of ‘Green’ power from solar panels.
    Interesting dilemma!
