Dear Resident,


PROPOSED SOLAR FARM NEAR BISHOP’S ITCHINGTON, STRATFORD-ON-AVON


I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Low Carbon Limited to introduce proposals for a new solar farm, to be known as Knightcote Road Solar Farm, and to ask for your views.


For further information, we have enclosed an information leaflet with this letter.


Knightcote Road Solar Farm is situated approximately 750m south of Bishop’s Itchington and approximately 900m north-west of Knightcote.


Low Carbon is a British-owned investment and asset management company which is committed to making a positive and significant impact on the causes of climate change. Their goal is a genuinely low carbon future with environmental stewardship and collaboration with local communities at the heart of their approach. Low Carbon is proud to be a Certified B
Corporation™.


Pegasus Planning Group is a specialist town planning consultancy and has been appointed by Low Carbon to coordinate the planning process for the project including engagement with the local community. Ultimately, the aim is to submit a planning application for the project, but no application has been made at this time.


The site will have a capacity of approximately 49.9 megawatts (MW) of clean renewable electricity and will provide enough energy to power more than 16,581 homes. This clean power will be provided to the local electricity network.


Public Consultation
Owing to the current health risks associated with COVID-19, public drop-in events are no longer appropriate, but we are still committed to hearing your views before we submit a planning application. Therefore, we are asking you to give us your views via our interactive digital engagement platform, to do this, please visit our website and go to the ‘Have your say’

Alternatively, if you are less comfortable with digital methods, you can still provide your comments via more traditional methods. Enclosed with the information leaflet is a feedback form which you can complete and post back to our Freepost address. You do not need a stamp, simply insert your completed feedback from into a blank envelop and write the address Freepost LOW CARBON UK SOLAR DEVELOPMENT.
