Lions Den BESS

Public Consultation

Elgin Energy EsCo Ltd. Is seeking to develop a battery storage project on land located on the land north of Lions Den, Hammerwich, Burntwood, WS7 0LB.

The development will occupy an area of approx. 1.5ha with the wider site being used for new tree, hedgerow and wildflower planting allowing for biodiversity net gains. The overall site is approx. 10ha in size.  The site is located approx. 700m south of Hammerwich and approx. 1km north east of Brownhills. This website has been created as part of the pre-planning process in order to allow for comments and feedback from interested parties before the planning application is submitted.

It is important to note that the project is evolving through detailed design and stakeholder consultation. We suggest that you revisit the website from time to time to check on developments or changes to the project.

We are targeting submission of a planning application in  August 2023, once we have received local feedback and made any necessary adjustments to our proposal.

In order to inform the planning application, responses are requested by 7th August 2023.
