The energy company behind plans to build a solar farm in the Suffolk countryside say they will appeal a council's decision to reject it.
Babergh District Council today refused consent for the solar park at Valley Farm near Tattingstone.
It was turned down on the grounds of its visual impact and that it's agricultural land.
The developer, Hive Energy, said it will appeal the decision, which means the application will be considered and determined by an independent planning inspector at a public inquiry.
Giles Redpath, Chief Executive of Hive Energy, said today “We are disappointed that the planning committee chose not to follow their officer’s advice.
"Our application follows both local and national planning policy and so it is likely that we will be appealing this decision.”
