YES to solar farm, NO to 187 homes
4:08pm Tuesday 21st August 2012 in News
A GIANT solar farm in Bridgwater the size of 20 football pitches has been given the go-ahead today.
Sedgemoor District Council’s development control committee approved Wessex Solar Energy’s bid for a 75,000-panel solar farm on three fields south of Durleigh Hill, subject to several conditions.
However, at the same meeting, the committee rejected a major housing application in west Bridgwater.
David Wilson Homes’ bid for 187 homes on land off Haygrove Farm had been recommended for approval by a council planning officer, but it was voted down by the committee.
