PLANS for a new solar farm in Old Basing will go on show to the public next week.

Lightsource Renewable Energy plan to install a five megawatt solar farm at Wildwood Farm, in Newnham Lane, to provide energy for around 1,400 homes.

Old Basing residents will have the opportunity to have a closer look at the plans during a public exhibition which will be held between 5.30pm and 8pm next Tuesday at Old Basing Village Hall, in The Street.

Conor McGuigan, planning and development director at Lightsource, said: “We want these plans to be the best fit for the local community, which is why we are keen for local businesses, residents and wildlife enthusiasts to come along to the information evening.”
