Maldon: Plans for solar farm submitted to council
5:00pm Friday 4th October 2013 in News
A planned solar farm has been halved in size following concerns from villagers.
Lightsource Renewable Energy has submitted a formal planning application for the installation on fields south of Beckingham Road, Great Totham.
The photovoltaic panels will be spaced out across two-and-a-half fields currently used to grow wheat and sheep will graze between them.
About 50 people attended an initial consultation in July and raised concerns about the loss of agricultural land, how the solar farm would look and how construction lorries would get to the site.
