Sustainable Charlbury is delighted to introduce a major new project which should be of interest to everyone in Charlbury and our neighbouring villages
News Update July 2014
Following the recent planning decision for the Southill Solar scheme Sustainable Charlbury has met with WODC planning officers to discuss options for a re-submission. Further updates will follow in due course.
Planning is in! March 2014
We are delighted to report that Sustainable Charlbury submitted the planning application for Southill Solar on Friday 14th February. This means that it should go to the Planning Committee on Monday 7th April 2014.
We know that letters of support will be important in helping us with a successful application, and we would be delighted if you felt able to support the application in this way. We also understand that receiving lots of identical letters is not as helpful as different letters with a variety of points. So rather than setting out the points for you to make in your letter, we are attaching a link to Southill Solar Community Engagement Report which we included in our application. You may wish to use some of the ideas from the statement in your letter.
Please address letters to: Ms Dawn Brodie

The Southill Solar Team
Sustainable Charlbury is working with the Cornbury Estate and Low Carbon Hub in Oxford to create a 5MW solar park on the Fawler Road just outside Charlbury
This exciting new project has been made possible thanks to the offer of 30 acres of land by The Cornbury Estate. The site is between Charlbury and Fawler and so the views and opinions of Charlbury folk, as well as our neighbours in Finstock and Fawler, are being sought
Our plan is for a community-owned facility which provides attractive returns on investment to individual shareholders as well as significant annual financial benefits back to the local community from the operating profit
