The spread of solar farms - update

October 8, 2014 8:56 AM

A total of 41 solar schemes have been proposed in Wiltshire. Some are built, others have planning permission and are awaiting construction, others are still going through the planning process. A few have been refused by Wiltshire planners.

For a map see WC agenda for the July 29th council meeting. Look at agenda supplement 1 page 27.

Here's a list. The first item ( eg N/11/00003/FUL) is the planning reference. If you want more detail on a specific application go to the WC planning website here and paste the reference into the search box.

The numbers after the address are firstly the capacity in megawatts, and then the area in hectares.
