Penso Battery Update

On Wednesday 6th October the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council’s Development Control Committee refused the application for Penso’s battery storage facility application (21/00349/FUL) 7 to 3 on the grounds of impact on the landscape. 

Given the solar farm is 210 acres – significantly larger and with more adverse impacts than the battery facility we hope when it comes to the Committee the application will also be rejected.
