Plans for a new solar farm have been drawn up for a site at Scottow near Coltishall in Norfolk.

An application to turn 30 hectares (roughly 74 acres) of farmland into a solar farm which could produce up to 12 megawatts of electricity has been submitted to planners.

The site falls within the boundaries of Broadland District Council and North Norfolk District Council. A final decision is expected early in 2013.
