Come rain or shine!

Southill Solar would really appreciate your help for just one hour!

15.00 – 16.00 (with traveling time either side)
Many people have asked us what Southill Solar is planning to do since our application was refused – in spite of personal supporting statements from Town and District Councillors on the day.

We made attempts to mitigate visual impact, but these were insufficient.  We are now planning a community event to assess more accurately which parts of the site are visible from the key viewing areas and in order to inform a re-design that would limit the impact of the panels. That’s why we need you – and your brightly coloured brolly!

On Saturday 27th September at 15.00 we are aiming to have at least 100 people at the site to form ‘lines of visibility’ – people with their umbrellas lined up across the site along lines we have already identified. These lines will be photographed from the five key viewing points around the site.

There is very limited parking and turning space at the lay-by so we are proposing to organise coach travel from the bus stop at The Playing Close, up to two trips departing at 2.25pm and 2.45pm, and then returning as soon as we have finished.

There will be an opportunity to make a voluntary contribution towards the costs of the coach hire.

Please let us know if you are coming as soon as possible.

We do hope that you can join us, it is all in a good cause, and should be fun as well.

Please reply to

and tell us if you are able to help.

Many thanks,

The Southill Solar Team
