New solar farm proposed for Rock Farm on the outskirts of Ludlow

A fourth solar farm is being planned close to Ludlow.

Global Renewable Construction Limited has applied for a screening option for a solar farm in Ludford parish (15/02288/SCR).[1]

The site is on the opposite bank of the Ledwyche Brook to the proposed Henley Hall solar farm. No other details are available at this stage.

A third solar farm is planned at Whitton. A fourth at Bromfield is expected to get planning permission shortly.
