A solar park in Cumbria has been given the go ahead after the Government decided not to oppose the plans.
The photovoltaic solar park will cover eight fields at Pasture Farm near Aspatria.
Allerdale Borough Council had initially approved the plans but it was delayed by a last minute intervention from Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. He had received a request from protestors to hold a public inquiry.
But after examining the issue Mr. Pickles has decided to allow the original decision to stand.
Opponents had tried to stop the plan, by Livos Energy, on the grounds that the solar panels would industrialise the landscape. The area already has a number of wind farms.
