Hilfield Solar Farm update

Enso Energy, has taken the opportunity to assess the design of Hilfield Solar Farm and see how they could improve the design of the scheme, or include additional screening to respond to resident concerns.

Our updated scheme design

Enso Energy would like to thank local residents for engaging in the pre submission consultation process.

In response to the feedback we received, we have updated the proposed design of the site to address a number of the issues raised. Where possible we have taken onboard the feedback and concerns of local residents and have made important changes. Notably we have reduced the area of solar panels on the site by 9.6 hectares or approximately 10% to increase the distance of the scheme from neighbouring properties.

In addition to reducing the area of the panels, the new design also offers:

  • Over 7.5ha of grassland and wildflower planting
  • 6.7ha of low intervention skylark habitat
  • 2ha of parkland
  • 2 nature areas
  • 0.7ha of orchard
  • 430m of permissive path linking to the Hertfordshire Way
  • 2.4km of green corridor

An annotated image of the revised scheme design, which contains detail of all the changes made can be downloaded below
