Little South Solar Farm
A 49.9MW solar energy development in Kent
About Little South
Statkraft is preparing to submit a planning application to Dover District Council for a solar energy farm on land at Little South, southwest of Richborough, Sandwich.
The site has been carefully chosen for its potential to deliver clean, renewable electricity direct into the local grid network, with a considerable contribution to national and local renewable energy targets. If consented, this 73ha site would generate up to 49.9MW of energy from photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, equivalent to the electricity needs of around 18,000 homes per year.
On this page you will be able to find more details on the proposal and the estimated timeline of the project, as well as details on how to get in touch and provide feedback.
In 2022, we submitted an EIA scoping report to the local authority, where we consulted Dover District Council on the opportunities and constraints for the site. We are now looking forward to sharing our proposals with local people to get feedback and suggestions on the plans for Little South Solar Farm, before submitting plans to Dover District Council in Spring 2023.
