Shropshire solar panel paddock plans approved

Permission has been granted for a family in Shropshire to install hundreds of solar panels in a paddock.

The solar panelled area will occupy the space of two tennis courts on private land owned by the Bright family in Dovaston, Kinnerley, Oswestry.

The Marches Energy Agency said they could potentially produce 90,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year.

Nine complaints were registered mainly about the view, but Shropshire Council said it would support renewable energy.

It is estimated the panels, which are below head height, will cost about £350,000 to buy.
