Why oppose a "solar park"?

We’re facing a climate emergency so we must embrace renewable energy but need to ensure the means of that energy are in the right place and on a suitable scale.

The proposed Cleve Hill Solar Park is a development to build a vast industrialised Solar Power Station on Graveney Marshes in North Kent. After a 6-month review the National Inspectorate submitted their recommendations to Alok Sharma the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

On the 28th May 2020 the Secretary of State announced his decision to approve the Solar Power Station despite serious opposition from statutory bodies and individuals, including letters to the Secretary of State and a petition with over 5,000 signatures.

Our campaign continues.
