Fareham Borough Council have extended the time that people can comment on the planning application submitted on behalf of IB Vogt for a new solar farm on land between Fareham and Stubbington, until Friday 21 December.
The planning application proposes solar panels and associated equipment, security fencing, landscaping, and two transformer buildings on 58 hectares (143 acres) of land, along with the provision of community green space for recreational use.
Councillor Nick Walker, Chairman of the Planning Committee, said: "We are planning a number of public events where people can find out more about the plans. We will publicise the details of these very shortly. We have also extended the date for people to comment on the planning application and I would urge anyone who would like to make their views known to take this opportunity to do so."
Consultation letters giving details of the public events and how to comment on the planning application will be sent out shortly to properties in Peel Common, Stubbington (East of Mays Lane and North of Gosport Road) and residences on Longfield Avenue, overlooking the fields to the South.
