Hangmans Hall Solar Farm Appeal Dismissed

Today, May 4th the appeal by Elgin Energy EsCo Limited against the decision of Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council to refuse the solar farm at Hangmans Hall Farm, Nuneaton, back in July 2020 was refused by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

  1. The effect of the proposed development on the character of the countryside;
  2. The effect of the proposal on the significance of nearby heritage assets;
  3. The effect of the proposed development on buried archaeology interests.
