Here is a short video of the location of the proposed industrial-sized solar park. We support solar but just not at this scale and in one location. This is not about protecting a few ‘back yards’, so called nimbyism, it’s about protecting the ever shrinking landscape around us.
Solar done well is good, solar done to make installers rich is not. Equally it’s not about solar or houses, with solar being the preferred option, housing will continue as long as property developers exist.
If approved, this installation will be in place for at least 40 years and will have been replaced by better technology and energy policy in half that time.
This is our countryside and it is up to us to either protect it or lose it for generations to come.
