   Solar Farm Update    24 June, 2022

Solar Farm   Nuneham Courtenay  P22/S1541/FUL

The developers have applied to extend the life of the Solar Farm from 35 to 40 years intended to correct an administrative error that occurred at the time of SODC decision. The Parish Council and other bodies including CPRE have expressed concern about this on the ground that it creates a considerable extension of the project which was not part of the original application. As there were also concerns that the original decision didn’t take sufficient account of the suitability of the site in the Green Belt and was taken on a casting vote of the chairman it has been argued that the decision this time should be taken by the planning committee and not just by the planning officer. This opinion has been supported by our District Councillor. We await the outcome.
