Chalgrave Manor Solar farm

In 2015 & 2021 there was an application for a 30 or 50MW Solar farm at Chalgrave Manor Farm. Although granted, these applications expired and now the developer is planning to re-apply later this month. Solar panels will be fitted on the agricultural land highlighted by the red line on the above map. The panels will be visible from many roads and rights of way.

Some of the issues have been raised previously include:

  • vehicle access during construction
  • ongoing vehicle access
  • disruption to local roads during cable installation
  • loss of productive agricultural land, and
  • improvements to footpaths and bridleways access

Planning has been granted in May 2023. Planning application and associated plans. Application to discharge conditions
