One matter the Solar Farm application has highlighted is that wildlife sightings in this area are under-reported.

Leicester and Rutland Environmental Records Centre (LRERC) collect and collate details of the flora and fauna in the area and they use this information to inform the planning services about biodiversity. Commercial firms and other organisations can pay for this information which can be used to create Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) to support planning applications such as the one contained within the application for the proposed solar farm at Barkestone.

Please read the attached note to get detail on how to report wildlife sightings. A template is also attached which can be used to send the information.
