Our plans for Honeyhall Solar Farm will save the equivalent of over 800,000 tonnes of CO2 which equates to taking c.12,500 cars per year off Somerset’s roads

Building a Brighter Future

Honeyhall Solar Farm would be located at land off King Road, south of Stock Lane, north of Churchill, and north west of Langford, in the parishes of Churchill, and Congresbury.

This location has been carefully chosen by our integrated team of experts. The site will benefit from an infield connection to the electricity grid, can be screened to minimise visual impact and has the potential to deliver positive gains for protected species.

Our proposals are informed by localised feedback. Your comments will help shape the final proposals that are brought forward and the team will listen, learn, and where appropriate, amend the designs, to ensure local feedback is incorporated.

By working in partnership with local communities, JBM Solar unlocks a project’s full potential by ensuring that the benefits of solar energy developments are realised in a way that positively impacts the surrounding community.

The displacement of over 800,000 tonnes of CO2 from equivalent fossil fuel energy, which equates to taking c.12,500 cars off Somerset’s roads

New green infrastructure such as enhanced rights of way, outdoor picnic areas, outdoor classroom, a community orchard and information boards

Genuine benefits for local residents including a £90,000 community benefit fund

The ability for over 95% of the site to be used for sheep grazing and remain in farming use, allowing topsoil to recover, by increasing soil organic matter and improving the soil structure

>50% biodiversity net gain providing ecological benefits through new habitats, such as wildflower meadows, grassland areas, ponds, bird nesting boxes and beehives

>10% net gain for hedgerow / trees including the reinstatement of historic field boundaries and landscaping enhancements such as new hedgerow and semi-mature tree planting to further improve wildlife corridors

Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) on site, ensuring the solar farm can be as flexible as possible in delivering energy to the grid

£5m generated in business rates over the lifetime of the project

Welcome to the Honeyhall Solar Farm Public Consultation. JBM are proposing to build a 30MW solar farm at land off King Road, south of Stock Lane, north of Churchill, and north west of Langford, in the parishes of Churchill, and Congresbury. The scheme would occupy around 165 acres of predominantly non-Best and Most Versatile (BMV) agricultural land, and deliver enough renewable generation to meet the equivalent residential needs of around 13,000 UK homes.
