A decision is expected today over a 95-acre solar farm in the heart of the Suffolk countryside.
The proposals for a 43,000-panel solar farm at Tattingstone near Ipswich are being discussed by Babergh District Council.
The scheme was recommended for approval by the council's planning officers.
The £25m proposals at Valley Farm near Alton Reservoir have been objected to by several parish councils and the actor Griff Rhys Jones.
The developer Hive Energy said the farm would generate enough electricity to power 6,000 homes.
