Proposed Green Belt Solar Farm at Noke

Land at Noke

18th July 2022

Plans for a 43 hectare solar farm, within the Oxford Green Belt north of Noke are currently being considered.

View the application and have your say on the Cherwell District Council website. Deadline for comment is 22nd July.

CPRE Oxfordshire has objected to the application:

“There would be severe damage to the Green Belt, its openness and to views into and within it, contrary to national and local policy, and loss of productive best and most versatile agricultural land, growing vital crops including renewable bio-mass. The core issue is whether the miniscule gain in terms of renewable energy goes anywhere near offsetting the damage from the development proposed.”
