Who we are

The Solar Farm Residents group is a group of residents, the majority, from the roads around the proposed Solar Farm and others from the villages of Bramley and Silchester who are opposed to this Industrial sized solar installation. The group was founded after ENSO submitted an EIA screening opinion for the Solar Farm to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council in August 2020. The group is entirely funded by donations from its members and is not aligned to any commercial organisation.
