You may have heard that a large solar farm is being proposed on land stretching between Hessay And Rufforth and extending to the cycle path. The company behind this are engaging in a pre-planning consultation and will be leafletting residents with details in the next few days.  If you haven’t already seen the leaflet, it can be found here.

It is important to note that this is a pre-planning consultation and any proposals will be subject to a full planning application. When and if a planning application is submitted the Parish Council will agree a response at a Parish Council meeting and residents will have the opportunity to comment or raise objections as appropriate.

In the meantime, we encourage residents to engage with this consultation process and let the Parish Council have your views.
