Local authorities are only permitted to give permission to solar power stations up to a certain size (50MW) – and the judge agreed that the Burnhope plans exceeded that size.

Confusing to me because Lighthouse BP knows the local rules (50 MW allowed), 92 hectares is just about enough for 50 MW, and a prior article suggested the site was 49.9 MW.

I assume the project will be submitted again.

Maybe there’s a battery there…I’ll follow up.
