PLANS for a new solar farm near Cirencester can be viewed by local people at a meeting this Friday.

Belectric UK is proposing a solar farm off Witpit Lane, near Preston, Cirencester. The 19.2MW solar farm will produce the equivalent energy for over 5,500 homes.

The scheme will be presented to residents on Friday, July 18 in the Barbican Suite at Cirencester Town Football Club. Staff will be available to chat to people at any time between 2.30pm and 6.30pm.

Project development manager at Belectric UK Mike Rogers said plans were due to be submitted to Cotswold District Council this summer.

"We want to hear people’s views to help us shape our proposals to the benefit of the local community, environment and economy," he said.

People who cannot make the event can email cirencester@belectric.co.uk or write to:

Belectric are not interested in local views when is everyone going to get real ? CDC will pass the application just like the one in Badsey Lane Willersey 13/00578/FUL (Full Application) . CDC have been got at as usual and nodded it through with a couple of bottles of Schnapps , compliments of Belectric Gmbh..

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown commented (following reductions by the Government in the ridiculously high feed in tariffs that the taxpayer subsidies solar panel installations)... "“I have written to the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne and the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Chris Huhne on the matters that we discussed to ensure that the Government is fully aware of the concerns that Ecovision have on this matter.”

Ah Chris Huhne Energy Minister aka lying convicted criminal ...
