Solar energy manufacturing site between Hoath and Chislet
Enso Energy has recently contacted Chislet Parish Council about its proposal to build a solar manufacturing site on 250 acres of arable farming fields between Hoath and Chislet.
Canterbury City Council Planning has agreed that environmental screening for this proposal is unnecessary because it "would not be likely to have significant effects on the environment."
Hoath and Chislet Parish Councils have jointly represented that the plans risk "lasting damage ... on [the] environment, society and governance (ESG) of Hoath, Chislet and wider region of Canterbury." (click here for more information in our News section)
This is likely to be discussed at forthcoming parish council meetings. Community input is encouraged.
