Proposed 23.3 Hectare Solar Park at Cofford Farm, Starcross
I attended the Teignbridge District Council planning committee meeting at Forde House in Newton Abbot earlier today. I was there objecting to the proposed Tedburn St. Mary solar PV farm, and the members ultimately voted to refuse the application with a ratio of 3:1. Over coffee after the vote my local district councillor pointed out to me that a request for a screening opinion had been received for a 23.3 hectare solar PV park near Starcross.
Accordingly Cofford Farm is now the latest entry in our ever growing list of local large scale solar PV planning applications to keep an eye on. On a cursory glance through the paperwork it looks as though this one may well be visible from one of our favourite walks past the Mamhead Obelisk.
