Potential Solar Farm for Clifton upon Dunsmore?

Warwickshire County Council is considering putting a solar farm onto its land at Dunsmore Home Farm on Lilbourne Road. It should be emphasised that at this stage there are no firm proposals and that the planning department at Rugby Borough Council has not yet been consulted on the matter.

The solar farm would be located on land that is south facing and slopes away from the ridsolar farmge on Lilbourne Road, so that it would not be visible from the village, although it could
become quite a landmark for traffic on the A5. It is understood that around 22 acres of the total 155 acres of the smallholding would be involved, and that sheep would continue to graze between the solar panels.

The proposed location of the site can be viewed here. Dunsmore Home Farm
