Targeted Consultation - Friday 14 June to Sunday 28 July 2024

We are carrying out a further round of consultation for Botley West Solar Farm, focusing on targeted changes that have been made across the site.

This consultation focuses on specific changes to the project site boundary (indicative Order Limits), primarily with small increases in land area, but also decreases to the land in some areas.

You can find more information on the targeted changes we are consulting in our Information Change Note. A zoomable map of the targeted changes can be found below.

We are holding this round of consultation from Friday 14 June to Sunday 28 July 2024. During this time, you have the opportunity to comment on these changes. We encourage you to submit any feedback you may have on the targeted changes.

More information about this consultation can be found on the Targeted Consultation page.

You can submit your feedback on these targeted changes by filling out our online feedback form:

You can also provide written feedback by emailing us at, or writing to us, free of charge, at FREEPOST BWSF. Our contact details can be found at the bottom of the page.

We published a Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) as part of our Phase Two consultation, which was held between 30 November 2023 and 8th February 2024. You can continue to read our PEIR - alongside all of our Phase Two consultation materials - here.

Photovolt Development Partners (PVDP) is proposing Botley West Solar Farm, a new solar farm in the west of Oxfordshire.

Botley West could deliver 840 megawatts (MW) of clean, affordable power to the National Grid, contributing to reducing carbon emissions and improving UK energy security. The project will connect to a new National Grid substation, to be built by National Grid near Farmoor reservoir, to the west of Botley, hence the name Botley West.

Our Proposals

Botley West has an agreement to provide 840 MW of clean, affordable power to the National Grid, providing enough electricity for the equivalent of 330,000 homes.

Botley West has increased minimum buffer zone distances between solar panels and all buildings, as well as providing significant increases to the buffer zones near residential areas.

Botley West seeks to increase recreational use and access across the site through the creation of new footpaths and cycle paths.

Botley West now includes a Landscape and Ecology Masterplan and will deliver a minimum Biodiversity Net Gain of at least 70%.

Botley West is exploring a dynamic and wide-ranging community benefits package.
