Solar Farm

This page is a home for articles about the proposed solar farm in West Wratting.

  • Balsham Parish Council ‘Solar Farm‘ webpage.
  • There’s a similarly sized solar farm proposed for just North of Newmarket. It is several years further into the planning process so is a useful precedent for what may happen to us. The decision planned for 11th April 2024 has been postponed yet again to 20 June 2024. This article gives the Solar Industry’s view on that delay.

    The website for “Say No to Sunnica” outlines the reasons put forward by that community action group for opposing the project.

A more detailed map for the proposed Solar Farm has appeared on the Balsham website, dated 7th March 2024. It appears to be from Downing LLP who own Kingsway Solar Farm Ltd.

I’ve used this new map to update the map for the Challenge article and on this webpage.
