Lark Energy to exhibit plans for solar farm in Whittlesey at public exhibition

PLANS for a solar farm in Fenland go under public scrutiny next week as Lark Energy hosts an exhibition.

Lark Energy unveiled its plans last month for a farm at a 24-acre site off Reach Drove, Black Bush Farm, Whittlesey. It is designed to deliver 3MW of power - enough to power around 750 homes.

The exhibition takes place on Tuesday February 22 at the Ivy Leaf Club, in Whittlesey, from 3-8pm.

Jo Wall, land planning manager of Lark Energy, said: “We have recently had preliminary discussions with Fenland District Council and Whittlesey Town Council and we are now hosting an exhibition for local people to see and discuss our plans.

“We want talk to local people about solar farms and show them what the Black Bush Farm solar farm would look like.

“We are aware, from preliminary discussions that people want to know about the visual impact, noise, security, lighting and how the land is managed, and our team will be there to show them pictures of the planned development and to answer any questions they may have.”

Lark Energy is a subsidiary of Larkfleet Homes which is hoping to build 460 homes on the outskirts of Whittlesey.
