On Monday night we were warmly welcomed to the Tarrington Parish Council meeting to present the scheme to them. The councillors asked a number of interesting questions about how it would work and recognised that it was very much in line with the Core Strategy for reducing carbon in the county. We hope this means they will be supportive of the planning application, which they are currently being consulted on.
We’re pleased to see that the transport officer for the Council has also reviewed our planning application and has no objections to what we are proposing at Glebe Farm.
Comments are now invited on our planning application at Glebe Farm, near Stoke Edith – please click here to support it. The deadline for comments is Wednesday 8th October, so please do this as soon as you can. Your support is really appreciated.
One of Herefordshire Council’s ecologists has reviewed our planning application and the ecology report included within this and has stated that he agrees with the findings and has no objection to our proposal.
We are delighted that Jonathan Porritt, leading environmentalist and writer, has recently lent his support to Pomona Solar and its vision for community owned solar arrays in Herefordshire:
“On my last visit to Herefordshire, I gave a talk in which I challenged the audience to make Herefordshire the leading solar county of the UK – and Pomona Solar Co-op is definitely part of the response to that challenge. PSC is aiming to install solar arrays (both ground-mounted and on roofs) in suitable locations across the county. This is all about low-carbon energy security for individuals, for communities and for the county as a whole, and I sincerely hope that everyone concerned about energy and climate change in Herefordshire will become a member and will help Pomona realise this ambitious and much-needed initiative.”
