Solar Farm Update – Jan 2023

Update statement from the developer:

“Solar panel deliveries to start soon

Further to our December update, on-site preparation works have been carried out and the construction team is now ready for the installation of the solar panels. The panel deliveries are due to start shortly, with deliveries over the next 6 to 7 weeks.

A Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) is in place which sets out the routing for construction vehicles (via the A5, Lilbourne and Yelvertoft) and mitigation measures during the construction process. We are working to ensure that any disruption to the local community is kept to a minimum. The dedicated site manager will be monitoring compliance and any issues will be addressed.

For any questions or concerns, please contact Marlies Koutstaal via the following below communication channels:

  • By email           :
  • By Freephone    : 0808 169 8082
  • By Freepost      : Freepost THE Y-FACTORY (no further address details or stamps required)

We are grateful for everyone’s patience in this matter. “

Rural Cost of Living Survey

Rural Services Network are asking for people to complete a survey: “Today we featured the following article in our weekly rural newsletter:
The survey is being held in partnership with the Citizens Advice Rural Issues Group.
Research commissioned by the RSN last year shows rural areas are suffering more acutely from the rise in the cost of living compared to urban areas. The purpose of the survey is to understand more about rural household budgets at, what is, a very difficult time for many. Results from the survey will help us to engage more effectively with Government Departments, MPs and other policy makers.
