Plans to build a multi-million pound solar farm just outside a West Norfolk village have been rejected by councillors.

Developers Solar Associates were seeking permission to install more than 30,000 turbines on land off Bircham Road.

A decision was initially deferred by the West Norfolk Council planning committee on Monday to enable a site visit to take place.

But the application was turned down following that visit yesterday.

The decision was made contrary to officers’ recommendations to approve the scheme.
