I welcome the decision of Suffolk County Council to oppose Sunnica's plans for a massive battery farm in the Suffolk and Cambridgeshire countryside. Even the most ardent supporter of renewable energy can see that putting a huge battery farm right next to villages is a bad idea.
Those behind this proposal have completely failed to bring the community with them. By attempting to force through unpopular proposals they damage the case for delivering the renewables we need.
I support solar developments locally where they are in the right place, but the way Sunnica have gone about this is completely wrong.
I now urge those who are also against the plans to join me in a march on Sunday 20 March to show Sunnica our strength of feeling.
We must stop this.
