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.

We held our statutory consultation from 30 May to 11 July 2023. During this time, we hosted a number of in-person and online events. Please see the ‘Consultation’ page for more information on our statutory consultation.

The feedback from our statutory consultation has been considered and we have carried out further technical work. As a result of this, we have identified a number of proposed changes to the draft Order limits and are consulting on these during our targeted statutory consultation between 14 December 2023 and 25 January 2024. This consultation is being run in accordance with section 42 of the Planning Act 2008.

All of the relevant information related to the targeted consultation can be found on the ‘Consultation’ page, and all documents can be found in the ‘Documents Library’.

Following our consultation, we will review all comments and suggestions ahead of submitting our application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) in 2024. 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 are now holding our targeted statutory consultation between 14 December 2023 and 25 January 2024. Please see the ‘Consultation’ page for full information about both consultations.
This statutory consultation followed our early stage engagement, including a series of collaboration workshops we held in July 2022. A report summarising these workshops can be downloaded from the ‘Documents Library’.
