Villagers invited to hear latest on plans to build power plant made from shipping containers on land off Spring Lane


A huge battery storage site made out of shipping containers, designed to support the National Grid network, could soon be coming to land near Lambley.

Plans have been submitted to Gedling Borough Council by Grenergy Renewables UK Ltd for a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) site on land south of Lambley Lane which is currently being used for agricultural purposes.

Developers claim the proposed development would provide energy balancing services to the National Grid with the capacity to store enough energy to power 300,000 homes a single hour.

Now villagers in Lambley are being invited to a meeting tonight (20) to hear more about the controversial plans from the firm behind the development.

Many fear that the site could emit noise 24 hours a day and is too close to local housing.

The parish council will meet with developers at 6.30pm at Lambley Village Hall, with people being invited to come along and hear more about the proposals.
