Tillbridge Solar Limited is developing proposals for a new solar and energy storage scheme (the “Scheme”), which would involve the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) generating panels and on-site energy storage facilities within Lincolnshire.

Our plans for Tillbridge Solar have evolved over a period of initial and on-going engagement with relevant stakeholders. Please see the ‘Consultation’ page for more information on our statutory and targeted consultations.

The application for a Development Consent Order for Tillbridge Solar was accepted by the Planning Inspectorate on 9 May 2024. The application will now proceed to the next stage of the planning process.

You can register to take part in the planning process shortly by clicking the “Register to have your say” option, which will become available on the Planning Inspectorate project page here once the Relevant Representation period opens. You can also sign up for updates here.

All the application documents are available on the documents page on the Planning Inspectorate’s website. Please visit the ‘Planning’ page for information on the planning process and next steps.

Tillbridge Solar is classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) as the Scheme would generate more than 50 megawatts (MW) of clean, green energy. If built, the Scheme would help to achieve UK net zero targets and make a vital contribution to the UK’s energy security. The Scheme would include infrastructure for connection to the National Grid at Cottam substation in Nottinghamshire.
We recognise that this Scheme is being developed with other schemes in the locality and we are committed to working collaboratively with these developers to help reduce disruption and provide shared benefits for local communities.

What are we doing now?

We invited views on our updated proposals during our statutory consultation between 30 May and 11 July 2023. We also held a targeted statutory consultation between 14 December 2023 and 25 January 2024. Please see the ‘Consultation’ page for full information about both consultations.
