We welcome feedback from residents and other interested parties which will be reviewed and, where possible, adopted. This information will assist in informing the final proposal for our planning submission, which we hope to submit to South Kesteven District Council later this year.

On October the 10th and 11th we held two public events at Sewstern Village Hall for the local community. These events were well attended and gave residents the opportunity to meet members of the Ironstone Energy team, have their questions answered, and discuss the proposals in more detail.

A copy of the exhibition boards displayed at the public events can be viewed or downloaded here.

Following the public consultation and submission of an application, South Kesteven Council (the local planning authority) will undertake its own consultation with statutory and non-statutory consultees and local residents before deciding whether a proposal should go ahead.

The planning process takes a minimum of 17 weeks, then subject to planning consent, we would hope to start work in Autumn 2024. Construction will likely last around 18 months. Ironstone Energy have an agreement in principle to lease the site for 30 years, after which the plant will be either upgraded, re-purposed or decommissioned.
