A 16-ACRE solar farm will go ahead after it was given the green light by councillors.

Nearly 12,000 panels will be put in at Forest Farm, between Bishop’s Waltham and Waltham Chase, after Winchester City Council’s planning committee approved it.

The farm, being developed by Earthworm Energy, will generate enough power for 850 homes.

Shedfield Parish Council raised concerns about the installation damaging the countryside. The council received six letters of objection and two in support.
