Got talking to a local when riding this afternoon and was told that there could be a solar farm very close by. It's a lovely little area, well used by horses and the wood has a fantastic display in the Spring of bluebells. It's also a recreational waymarked route.
I've found this on the County Council planning website - 'Request for a screening opinion under the EIA Regulations for proposed Solar farm'.
The application has been submitted by a company who specialise in
helping rich landowners who want to become even more rich this sort of thing.
Curious as to what the outcome could be. Sounds as though there's going to be a public meeting and apparently there's several millionaires in the vicinity who could be influential.
I feel incredibly sad, having enjoyed this area for around 15 years.
