You can find the application, and the many supporting documents, on the Melton Borough Council website, reference 20/01182/FUL. Just type "Barkestone" into the search box and you will find it.

This is a major application for a huge solar farm which will last for at least 40 years and transform the landscape North of Barkestone. Please take time to review the information on the planning website or on the page on this website, and make your views known.

Please fill in the survey about the Solar Farm proposal. It will take a while to assess all the information in the planning application, but we do want to start to gather residents' initial views - difficult during the pandemic. We hope the Survey Monkey survey works, but we are also going to deliver paper surveys to all residents in Barkestone. Comments can be dropped off through the letterbox of Tom Parry, 1 Middle Street, Barkestone or with any other Parish Councillor.
