This page will contain updates on the proposal for a Solar Farm on the land known as Green Farm, North of Barkestone.

The planning application for this proposal has been submitted to Melton Borough Council and should soon be on their website, enabling people to make comments.

The Parish Council will be a consultee on this planning application (it does not make a decision - that is up to Melton Borough Council). The Parish Council is very keen to hear views from parishioners on the proposal, particularly if they are supported by evidence or information of which the PC might not be aware.

The PC is also trying to help residents get the information they need about the proposal. The agents for the applicant, Savills, have a consultation process but it is mainly online via their website. We have persuaded them to provide information for an exhibition in the Barkestone Hub.
