Climate change is real and it’s taking its toll on the countryside. Within a few decades it will have altered many of our landscapes forever. We are already suffering the effects of wet winters, dry springs, storms and shifting seasons. Our high-carbon economy, based on roads and airport expansion, and energy-inefficient buildings, needs to make way for low-carbon, carefully planned development.
CPRE Oxfordshire is calling for a properly thought out strategy for the location of renewable energy, as more of Oxfordshire’s farmland is targeted by solar companies.
With applications increasing dramatically, we have published a map showing existing solar installations across the county and those currently under consideration. The map will be regularly updated to reflect new solar farm applications.
