Have your say on proposed solar farm

Members of the public have a month to comment on plans to create a 130-hectare solar farm near Aldenham.

A planning application has been submitted by Elstree Green Limited seeking permission for the construction and operation for 35 years for a grid-connected solar photovoltaic farm with battery storage and other ancillary infrastructure on land north of Butterfly Lane and surrounding Hilfield Farm, and west of Hilfield Lane.

The application can be viewed by going to the website and searching for either Butterfly Lane or reference number 21/0050/FULEI.

Councillor Linda Silver, Chairman of our Planning Committee, said: “I would urge anyone who lives, works or uses the area, particularly those who think they might be directly affected, to take the time to view the proposal and give us your thoughts. “You can view and submit your comments on the plans, without leaving your home, if you have a computer or a smartphone. “Our Civic Offices remain closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, so we would urge everyone to use our online services.”

Comments should be submitted before 24 February by visiting or by e-mailing
and quoting the case reference number.
