You’ve probably arrived on this page because you’re concerned about the proposed solar and battery storage power station and you want to do something. If so, great! Please register your voice with the Planning Inspectorate – it just needs your contact info and your key concerns and it takes as little as five minutes.
See or advice on how to do this, or just go to:
At the moment, registering is the best way to show our opposition.
Lots of folk have asked if they can show their support by signing a petition, so we’ve set one up online: Save Graveney Marshes habitat and wildlife from obliteration by 1 MILLION solar panels!
Please sign it if you care about our coastal countryside!

Having studied the Solar Park plan it is clear that it will cause utter devastation to the habitat of the wildlife and will be a dreadful blot on the landscape.
Don’t want this as it will destroy one of the last remaining sections of graveney marshes. Also, it is not ‘green’ as it will require too much concrete and solar panels which need replacing. A solar panel park makes sense in the desert not here where we don’t get enough sun which would make such an investment profitable by itself. The government will buy the excess power – which is then paid for with taxpayers money. So we are in fact subsidising it….!
Devastating for the wildlife in the area I am absolutely appalled that it’s even being considered. .. I agree solar power is the way forward but this is not the place and the site is far too big. Why do we not put the panels on warehouses and new builds and save what is left of our countryside especially in this corner of the UK that is being swallowed up by development!
Totally wrong for the environment and the health of people and animals. This cannot be allowed to go ahead it’s definitely not ‘progress’.
Totally unacceptable desecration of our beautiful marshes
I have walked here regularly for the past 25 years and to build a solar farm on this piece of land would ruin the landscape. I have no objection to solar energy in principle however there are miles of farmland not in the direct eyeline of the public, why does this have to be built on an environmentally sensitive site. I absolutely object.
When the government has legislated that all new housing and all industrial buildings have solar panels. When all other avenues have been tried, only then should Anywhere be considered for 1 million solar panels. Graveney is NOT the correct site to experiment putting the largest field of panels on a site so used by migrating birds etc.
This is obscene. To present this as ‘green ‘is laughable. How much electricity will be used in producing vast numbers of solar panels, huge quantities of concrete, not to mention the logistics involved.
It is vandalism on a vast scale, the developers can only see money, not the irreplaceable landscape.
Please do not build a solar power station on Graveney Marshes. It would be an eye sore and destroy the beautiful marsh land which is habitat to so much wildlife. It would be much better to build all the new builds going up around Faversham with solar panels and thereby solve both our alternative energy need and provide us with housing. Let’s NOT destroy any more of our precious land!
This is a unique area, a habitat for wildlife, some of which are rare. This is a treasure house for future generations, it cannot be destroyed. There are plenty of other areas where such a power station could be placed, areas once used for industry now abandoned because it is cheaper to build on virgin farm land rather than brown field sites. The government must listen to what the population wants, not just big business. The survival of our own species depends on this.
