Another Solar Farm permitted.
Wiltshire Council has given planning permission for a 5MW solar farm at Brook Hall in Heywood parish. The development will consist of static arrays of solar photovoltaic panels, ancillary plant, electrical equipment, SSE substation, security cameras, access tracks and fencing.
Heywood and North Bradley parish councils had objected to the scheme, though only two members of the public had complained.
The site is a couple of miles south of Trowbridge and near to the West Wilts Trading Estate. The land is agricultural, and lies to the north of the Brook Hall Farm complex.
The site is accessed via a track to the south, linking into the Trading Estate.
The application was approved by a majority vote at this afternoon's planning committee.
