Have your say

BUILDING is now under way on the largest solar farm in the UK.

One completed, the Southwick Estate site will cover 200 acres and provide enough power for 11,000 homes.

Mark Thistlethwayte, owner of Southwick Estate, said: ‘This is a large construction project and there will be some disruption, but we will do our best to keep it to a minimum.

‘We expect to be completed within four months.’
