i think it depends on location. id rather see theses than wind farms, which catch your eye. I think they look like a lake.Solar farms are hideous.
I’d rather live next to a housing or industrial estate. At least they are providing jobs and/or housing. Put them on roofs for goodness sake.
Massively affect the public perception of farmers too- a farmer near put one in and ten years later half the village still won’t speak to them. It’s not a big community either. Is it really worth it?
putting on roofs is all well and good if the grid can cope. most of the time it cant which is why SF’s tend to be clustered along grid lines.
Say no more. Always looks amusing on the planning application when the applicant and deciding body are they same.I do believe that Peterborough council built solar farms on some of their small holdings , which I understood were grade 1. That is a crime I think
soil testing is compulsory now for each application to determine just how good it is.
one in planning near here thats been a grass farm for the last 100 years yet CPRE bang on about loss of food production etc. Sheep love solar farms, it gives them so much shelter, as do grey partridge
