Aura Power is proposing a solar farm on land to north of Broad Lane, near Bishampton, Worcestershire. The proposed location falls within the district of Wychavon, and the parish of Bishampton. The solar farm will generate enough electricity to power 11,650 homes, thereby saving 14,300 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere each year.
As well as generating renewable energy, the proposals also include measures to improve biodiversity and ecology at the site, sheep grazing to manage the land, and a community benefit fund to be spent on local educational, social and environmental projects. Aura is particularly keen to find out from local people what projects might benefit from the funding.
They are having a online public consultation webinar and Q&A session on Tuesday 28th July 6pm
