Havering Borough Council is planning to build two solar parks with a combined capacity of 15.5MW. The proposed schemes would generate “significant” revenue, according to the council.
The council has published proposals for a 9.5MW solar park at Dagnam Park and a 6MW scheme at Gerpins Lane.
Dagnam Park, where up to 30 hectares has been earmarked for consideration, borders the M25. Gerpins Lane is a former landfill site, with eight hectares mooted to house the solar scheme.
The council’s energy strategy team seeks views on the proposals by 31 October. View the plans here.
