Bluestone Energy, working with Anglian Water, are proposing a renewable solar energy scheme south of Pilton, in Rutland. Staveley Solar Farm would have a power output of 40MW of renewable energy.

If Staveley Solar Farm is granted consent, it would help to provide clean, sustainable energy to Rutland’s water supply and contribute to local and national net zero targets.

We have now submitted a formal planning application to Rutland County Council. Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment on the proposal on the Council’s website before the Council’s Planning and Licensing Committee convene to make a decision this year.

If you wish to comment on Staveley Solar Farm’s planning application, a link can be found here – HERE.

The planning application number is 2024/0300/MAF.
