Wedmore Solar farm restriction lifted
7:30pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
A CONDITION preventing work starting until the winter on a massive solar farm in Wedmore has been lifted.
The planning condition, which was attached when Community Power was given the go-ahead for 4,000 solar panels at Quab Lane, was meant to avoid disturbing Great Crested Newts, which hibernate in winter but are active in summer.
However, a county ecologist said even if newts were on the land, they are nocturnal and would almost certainly not be on the fields when builders move in during daytime.
