Solar farm project rejected at Little Horsted

Plans for a solar farm between Uckfield and Ringmer have been refused by Wealden District Council.

The project included photovoltaic panels, associated buildings and security cameras. It was proposed for land at the Bentley Estate, Little Horsted.

Wealden planners said the proposal would affect the “visual amenity of the local landscape and represent an inappropriate urbanisation of a distinctive and unspoilt rural landscape”.
