Plans for a solar farm at Thriplow have been withdrawn.

The 79-acre farm, at Manor Farm in Church Street, was due to be discussed by South Cambridgeshire District Council’s planning committee at its meeting last week, but was withdrawn by the applicants, Lightsource.

Planning officers from the district council had recommended that the scheme, which has attracted significant opposition in Thriplow and the nearby village of Heathfield, be refused.
