Rosefield Solar Farm

Planning Process

Rosefield Solar Farm is classed as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) because of the amount of electricity it would generate (over 50MW). This means we need to apply for a type of planning consent called a Development Consent Order (DCO) to build and operate it.

Consultation is an important part of the DCO process as it enables everyone to comment on the proposals. The feedback received, along with further technical work and environmental studies, will inform the development of our proposals ahead of the submission of our DCO application to the Planning Inspectorate.
