Proposed Sampshill Solar Farm planning application
Following Westoning Parish Councils consultation
exercise with the community, the Parish Council has recorded its opposition to the application for the development of a 162 acre solar farm on arable
farmland off Sampshill Road in Westoning.
The results from the consultation exercise and the Parish Councils letter of objection submitted to CBC can be found on the Solar Farm tab under Village Info above.
Details and contact information can be found under Village Info.

Adopt a Planter

The Parish Council has obtained permission from Central Bedfordshire Council to install about 20 planters in approved locations around the village over a period of time. The approved locations are mostly at junctions
where there are grass verges and where the planter will not obstruct vision splays.

The locations of these planters will depend largely on the availability of volunteers who live nearby to tend them and water them when needed. It is possible for an individual resident, a family or business, or a group of residents to sponsor a planter.  The planters could be dedicated to a loved one with a plaque or bear the name of the sponsor on the front. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor
please contact Elaine Russell on elaine09russ@hotmail.com to register your interest.
