GREAT has joined the Solar Campaign Alliance, a joint venture between resident-driven action groups opposing the rapidly growing issue of large-scale solar developments on UK farmland.
Following approval of the Cleve Hill Solar Farm proposal, a swathe of new, large-scale solar applications are being submitted. This raises concerns that continued loss of agricultural land will undermine the UK’s future food security.
To limit further loss of this valuable land, a petition has been raised asking the Government to produce a National Policy Statement on Farmland Protection.
Please sign this petition and add your support to the call for a policy to regulate the loss of this land to solar.
