Honeyhall Solar Farm

Unlocking enough clean domestic energy to meet the equivalent annual needs of over 13,000 UK homes

The Need For Solar

The UK has made a legally binding commitment to achieve a net zero fully decarbonised power system by 2035. This can only be achieved with the adoption and roll-out of reliable, affordable, clean energy sources such as solar.

North Somerset Council declared a climate emergency in 2019 and published it’s Climate Change Action Plan and set a target for the District to lead the way and become carbon neutral by 2030. Solar farms, such as Honeyhall Solar Farm, will make a meaningful contribution to the local, and national, climate commitments.

Our Proposals

  • Honeyhall Solar Farm would be located east of Brinsea Batch, approximately 2.5km south of Congresbury, 1.5km north of Churchill, and 1.5km west of Langford, in the parishes of Congresbury, and Churchill.
  • The planned solar farm will generate 48GWh of electricity per year.
  • This would provide the equivalent energy needs of over 13,000 North Somerset homes and CO2 savings of over 800,000 tonnes which equates to taking c.12,500 cars off North Somerset’s roads.
  • The site would be preserved as greenfield before, during, and after it is decommissioned. Large, open, green spaces will also be created around the site for residents to use and enjoy.
  • Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) on site, ensuring the solar farm can be as flexible as possible in delivering energy to the grid.
  • As part of our public consultation, we will be hosting an in-person consultation event on Wed 14th June 2023 from 2pm – 7pm at St Andrew’s Room in the Old School Rooms, 1 Station Road, Congresbury, BS49 5DY. The consultation period closed on 30th June 2023. We are now taking time to process feedback from members of the public, councillors, and other interested groups before finalising our planning application.
