Heritage objections lead to delay on Ludlow solar farm decision

Plans for a 33-hectare solar farm near Ludlow have been put on temporary hold after objections from Historic England and Shropshire Council’s historic environment team.

The South Planning Committee was due to make a decision on the solar project at its meeting on 16 June. But after the responses from heritage bodies, which said that the heritage assessment provided with the planning application is “inadequate”, Kronos Solar has asked for the application to be deferred until the next meeting of the planning committee on 14 July.

The Whitton solar farm proposal is still scheduled for the agenda of the 14 June South Planning Committee meeting.
