A company based in Ireland has been given the go-ahead, by the Isle of Wight council planning committee, to build the largest solar farm on the Island.
It is hoped by the developer, BNRG Renewables, that the 75-acre development at Hill Farm, St Helens/Brading will produce 10MW of electricity.
The CP say that the approval was given with the understanding that the panels be removed after 25 years. It’s also reported that St Helens Parish Council objected to the development, whilst Brading Town Council supported it.
