One of Luminous Energy's Operational Solar Farms

Luminous Energy is proposing to develop a solar farm on land at Reigate RH2 8QG

The Duxhurst Solar Farm project, previously known as Ironsbottom Solar Farm, is currently in its formative stages with most of the necessary environmental surveys now complete. Our intention is to submit a planning application for this project in the next two to three months.

The solar farm is approximately 70 acres and lies wholly within the planning authority area of Reigate and Banstead Borough Council.

Luminous Energy is keen to engage with the local community and actively seeks your opinion about the solar farm in the Ironsbottom/ Duxhurst Lane area. If you were unable to attend the recent public consultation, there is still time to complete the questionnaire below or return the feedback form in the brochure. The public consultation period ends on Wednesday 20th July, so please get back to us before then.

A range of ecological enhancements are being considered as part of the application. These include, areas of wildflower and bird seed mix, bat and bird boxes and revitalisation of existing ponds to encourage pond life such as newts. The solar farm would have a significant positive net biodiversity impact.
