Is this the Sookholme development, or yet another one?

In the Christmas edition of the Chad it stated that four solar farms in the Mansfield area had been approved quoting one of the sites as being at Warsop Vale

The only one that was not approved was at Penitent Farm at Mansfield

I have no idea if the Warsop Vale one is the Sookholme site

Oh dear! We must be the solar capital of the UK. You really do have to wonder where all the power is going, that these solar farms are supposed to be generating, though the past few weeks have been so dull I doubt they're generating a lot.

From that Chad article it would seem that this is not the Sookholme application, but a completely different scheme, located on Carter Lane; that seems to have sneaked through without anyone knowing about it! (it doesn't appear on the Council's planning website, either as an application pending approval or as one approved...)

Also in that article, it seems the Penniment Lane scheme in Mansfield was rejected because ' it would be a loss of agricultural land'; the Warsop Vale scheme, however, is on land 'currently used for arable farming', so that's alright, then :roll:

Well, that just about says it all. Warsop is the back water of Mansfield. Is anyone campaigning against this new development? Maybe not if it's a back door planning application, so we need to know more about it.

A very warm welcome to the forum! There are a lot of people who lurk in the background and it's always good to welcome new input. ;)

I have done some research and its not a back door planning application its all above board, alas it was not a decision that was down to Mansfield District Council to decide as the land concerned comes under Bolsover District Council, see below

That link identifies the scheme at Thirty Acres Farm... and following that identification the planning application was with Mansfield District Council, their reference 2015/0451/NT, Case Officer Peter Mansbridge. The site is in Warsop Carrs Ward, the application was passed on 18th November 2015 (Planning Committee Item 6).
