Three ‘No’s In-A-Row As Motcombe Parish Council Oppose 96-Acre Solar Farm

Low Carbon want to build a 96-acre solar farm to the west of Motcombe. Shaftesbury Town Council and Gillingham Town Council have already objected to proposals.

The project would require the installation of solar arrays near the White Hart Link footpath and within the historic Gillingham Royal Forest.

Plan of the Solar Farm by Low Carbon.

The proposed Fernbrook Solar Farm is in Motcombe Parish. Some Motcombe councillors attended a presentation by the applicant last week and the council gave residents one week to submit their feedback on the plans.

Villagers responded and the Parish Council is now objecting. Listen to our report to hear Cllr Peter Mouncey explain why councillors are against these proposals.
