The School of Climate Change is returning for its 9th edition starting 18th January. Taught over 9 weeks, this is a comprehensive ‘Climate 101’ course taught by some of Oxford University’s most distinguished climate experts, bringing participants from all over the world for the unique opportunity to learn about the core science, policy, and politics of climate change. The programme is designed so that it delivers the interdisciplinary knowledge necessary for successful climate action, whilst remaining accessible to individuals from all backgrounds.  ​

Solar Farms​ - Urgent Supporting Comments Needed!

 

Solar farms are the most important way Wiltshire can capture renewable energy. When well-sited on low-quality agricultural land and surrounded by trees, they increase biodiversity value compared to grazing pasture, and nature can flourish between and under the rows of panels.

Three new 50MW farms are currently up for planning consideration. They would increase Wiltshire’s solar PV capacity by 25% and power over 45,000 homes, making a major contribution to achieving Wiltshire’s net zero carbon targets. They would be near existing infrastructure such as the motorway, pylons and substations, and not in specific areas of natural beauty. Please could you look at our information and links to comment forms and consider submitting supportive comments to Wiltshire Council?

 

Surveys show majority support but comments to date on the planning applications are mainly from a minority of objectors. One application has already been re-submitted with many panels removed, due to complaints that they would be visible from certain angles, and this substantially reduces its capacity to provide power in the important morning and evening periods. The green companies developing these schemes need our support to get them through the planning system.
