MP says no to solar plant

Parliamentary opposition to solar power plant in Dorset

The application for an almost identical solar development (187 acres) at Higher Stockbridge Farm, just a few miles west from the proposed North Dairy Farm solar power plant, has been publicly opposed by the West Dorset Member of Parliament.

Here Chris Loder MP’s letter to the Chair of the Dorset Planning Committee. His reasoning applies equally to the development proposal opposed by so many in the Blackmore Vale community. They understand that offshore wind will supply the low carbon energy we must have to effectively combat global warming and climate change – and at significantly lower carbon costs than solar.

For the North Dairy Farm proposal at Pulham, you now only have until the 31st May to submit your material planning objections online – or email them to Planning Team D at Dorset Council .’
