Planning officers from Harborough Council have recommended that a plan for a solar farm in Theddingworth should not get the go-ahead.

Abbey Renewable Solar Energy wants to build a 21.3-hectare solar farm in open countryside near Beeches Farm off Mowsley Road, about 400m north-west of Theddingworth and 1.5km from Husbands Bosworth.

But planning officers think the plan would be ‘dominant and visually intrusive’.

The council’s planning committee, however, will get the final say on the proposal and it is due to be discussed on Tuesday at the council’s offices in Harborough from 6.30pm.
