Solar park must not obliterate marshes

I’m worried that plans for a solar farm will cover Graveney marshes, harming wildlife and changing the landscape beyond recognition. Though the developer has listened to concerns and reduced the scale, it’s still huge.

Solar energy is important for a sustainable, green future – but this is just massive. With 880,000 panels, it will industrialise swathes of open countryside. This beautiful, eerie landscape loved by walkers might never be the same again.

Solar power station will industrialise swathes of marshland

Cleve Hill Solar have launched their application process to build a solar power plant on 387.6 hectares of Graveney Marshes. I spoke out against the scheme at the GREAT (Graveney Rural Envirnmental Action Team) meeting at the Guildhall in December.
