Weʼre raising £10,000 to Save Glem Valley and fight the proposed 100 acre Boxted Solar 'Farm' -See www.saveglemvalley.org
Don't have time to donate right now?
A solar farm developer is proposing to place solar panels on 100 acres of productive agricultural land, on a North East Facing Hill, rendering them less efficient. This is a designated Special Landscape Area in the Stour Valley Project area that is adjacent to Dedham Vale AONB. The site will be visible from miles around and enclosed with metal fencing and have CCTV cameras.The Save Glem Valley Group are campaigning against this and will need to employ various advisers and consultants such as barrister, heritage and planning specialists, and landscape architects. The visual impact will be devastating to residents and visitors to this unique hilly part of Suffolk. This agricultural area could provide 82 million weetabix, or 500,000 loaves a bread a year. We believe in renewable energy but believe solar panels should be on roofs/industrial areas, not beautiful and productive land. The River Glem already floods regularly and we fear this could affect the lanes and housing in the valley.
So far we have funded a short film, banners and fliers and an architectural historian, and have an ongoing legal adviser

I recently moved into the area to get away from developments such as this . It is so ill suited to it's surroundings and I wish you every success in defeating the proposal .

Fully supportive and thankful for all the effort you are putting into what by all accounts seems an utterly ridiculous scheme.

Solar should be on rooftops, not taking agricultural land and spoiling the landscape for miles around.

About the fundraiser
Save Glem Valley Campaign Group
We are concerned residents from local villages who want to preserve the 'rolling valley farmlands' for food production and as a beautiful area to enjoy. We have raised £11,000 from previous donations and art auction, but need additional funds for specialist advisors to aid us.
