5MW <a href='javascript:void(0)' class='keyword' id='19' style='text-decoration:underline;color:blue' >solar</a> farm planning permission granted
A planning application for a 5MW solar farm on land at Westwood Farm, near the villages of Walesby and Kirton and the town of Tuxford in Nottinghamshire has been submitted to Bassetlaw District Council.

The solar farm shall generate sufficient electricity to provide the needs of 1,050 average UK households or 2% of all households within Bassetlaw District.

Incorporating a bio-diversification scheme with sympathetic management of hedges and edges as well as the careful creation of wildflower grassland strips in-between the panels, the solar farm shall support a broad range of invertebrates, and hence birds, amphibians and reptiles and smaller mammals.
