Varley Farm Solar Farm approved

Despite the objections of a large number of residents, supported by the Parish Council, South Glos. Council (SGC) has decided to approve the application for development of a solar farm on land at Varley Farm, Talbots End. You can read the decision notice here.

The parish council wishes to commend the many residents who have put forward their views on this application to SGC or attended the committee meeting at which the decision was made. Planning decisions may not always go the way we might wish, but it is still important that local people have chance to have their opinions heard in a democratic way.
