Meridian Solar
Consultation Feedback Form
30 May 2024 to 11 July 2024

Downing Renewable Developments (DRD) is consulting on Meridian Solar – a proposed solar farm with associated infrastructure including co-located battery storage and a grid connection to National Grid’s planned Weston Marsh substation east of Spalding. Meridian Solar would supply around 750 Megawatts (MW) of electricity, enough to power around 215,000 homes, This is roughly the equivalent of powering all the homes in South Holland, East Lindsey, North Kesteven and Lincoln combined.

This is phase one of our consultation for Meridian Solar, and your comments will assist us in developing our proposals in more detail and refining our project design ahead of statutory consultation. This non-statutory consultation is open between 30 May 2024 to 11 July 2024.

As part of the consultation, we are also seeking your views on how DRD can best support local initiatives and provide benefits to the community through the development of Meridian Solar.

To help inform your response, we have published a consultation newsletter, available on the Meridian Solar website. We have also planned a number of in person consultation events where project specialists will be on hand to answer questions and seek to address any concerns people may have regarding the Scheme.
This consultation is now closed.
