Eynsham Parish Council has been advised that Botley West Solar Farm project has now entered a statutory pre-application consultation process. All are encouraged to consider the plans and share their views.
This consultation opened on 30 November and will close on Thursday 8 February. Eynsham residents may like to attend the event being held at the Village Hall on Friday 19 January (2pm-6pm) to find out more and speak to members of the project team. The developer’s website also has thorough information about the plans, with all the documents available for review as well as a link for submitting your response: Home - Botley West Copies are also available to read at Eynsham Library.
We have updated our Strategic Planning page with the latest information. This page contains a link to the Parish Council’s previous response as well as the website address for the Botley West Solar Farm: Strategic Planning - Eynsham Parish Council (eynsham-pc.gov.uk).
The Parish Council will be submitting an official response and we would encourage residents with an interest in this project to do so themselves, considering how large the planned solar farm is and the potential impact this development will have on our local area.
