Please reject the planning application to replace unspoilt West Worcestershire agricultural farmland with a large scale solar park at Woodhall Farm (planning ref 14/01658/FUL).

Rural Worcestershire is under real threat from solar park developers wanting to replace productive, arable farmland with row upon row of solar panels with a large scale (185 acres) solar farm, equivalent to 105 football pitches. Solar energy should be encouraged in the RIGHT locations, as per government guidelines (eg brownfield sites and rooftops), NOT in the middle of the English countryside. This development will be huge and a significant blight on the rural landscape, impacting both local communities as well as spoiling the glorious views from the nearby Malvern Hills and the even closer Ankerdine Hill. An additional application for land adjoining this site is also under consideration, which would add a further 36 acres of solar panels. If this is approved this would be one of the largest ever Solar Farms in England. We cannot and should not allow large swathes of our countryside to be blighted, farming is what our farms are for and what keeps our landscape beautiful. Please support our campaign to reject this latest application. Thank you.
