Maisemore Solar Farm - Community Consultation

Those who attended the Annual Maisemore Parish Meeting on 12 April 2021 were granted an audience with the promoters of the new Maisemore Solar Farm, and following their presentation there was a lively debate as to the pros and cons.


Their website is now live - - where you can read up about the proposals and respond to the consultation - please also let the Parish Council know your thoughts.


From the website:

Renewable Connections is investigating the potential for a 40MW solar energy farm in Maisemore, Gloucestershire. Once operational, the project would supply enough power for 11,000 homes, and make a valuable contribution towards tackling the climate emergency in Gloucestershire.

As we prepare an application to submit to Tewkesbury Borough Council, Renewable Connections is undertaking consultation to inform local communities of our proposed plans and invite any feedback. We will also be hosting virtual community information events to present our proposals and answer any questions given the COVID-19 pandemic.

We welcome any feedback you wish to provide so please do get in touch.


A leaflet is also being distributed in the post, or you can download it from 


There is an online consultation event to be held by the promoters on 29 April 2021 at 7pm. Please register your interest via the promoter's website form.

The matter will also be discussed at the May Parish Council meeting - please check your emails as to when this will take place since we are investigating alternatives to the 10 May 2021 date presently published following the government's withdrawal of the ability to use Zoom for meetings beyond 7 May 2021.
