Save Suffolk Countryside

780 Signatures Goal: 1,000

There is currently a planning application (B/13/01107) to build a huge 65 acre solar farm (size of 37 football pitches) inbetween the beautiful village of Newton Green and Edwardstone, Suffolk. It will be clearly seen from Edwardstone Church, a Grade I* Listed Building which occupies a unique position in the valley it overlooks.The Suffolk gem that is Box Valley will be lost, most likely, forever.
The proposed site is next to our beautiful, ancient farmland (farmed by our family for over 150 years) and a few hundred meters from a wood which is a 'site of special scientific interest'.

It would ruin this piece countryside for the local people to enjoy.
We are totally pro green energy BUT feel that this precious, ancient piece of British countryside is the wrong place for a solar farm of this scale.
Solar farms belong on disused airfields, industrial buildings, wasteland, roofs. Please let Babergh District Council realise how important this is for everyone who lives in Newton Green and the surrounding Suffolk area (solar farms are popping up all over this area and some of them, like this one, we need to stop!). We are asking people who sign this petition to help us communicate to the planning officer Mr John Davies that this planning application must be stopped.
