Withdrawal of the Freckenham Estate from the Sunnica Scheme

Please see latest statement below from Richard Tuke. 

Our withdrawal from the scheme does not prevent Sunnica from including our land in their submission to the Inspectorate nor does it stop them from applying for compulsory powers to purchase our land should they choose to do so. We have however written the Inspectorate formally telling them that Sunnica are including our land without permission, they have noted this and included it in their records. In summary Sunnica has no permission to use our land for the project and it will not get permission; we however cannot stop them submitting an application that includes our land although we will make sure our objection is properly noted as part of the process.

 

 

SUNNICA Energy Farm

You may be aware of the proposal for two new energy farms connecting to the National Grid at Burwell which would help to power approx. 100,000 homes. One at land south of Worlington and one south of Chippenham, the exact locations of the different elements of the scheme have yet to be finalised.

A public exhibition was held on Saturday 29th June at Freckenham Village Hall.

The Parish Council encouraged people of the village to attend the exhibition in order to view the information about the proposal and speak to members of the project scheme.

Please note if you missed the exhibition but wish to find out more information, there are other exhibitions being held in the area including Thursday 11th July at West Row, Wednesday 17th July at Fordham and Friday 19th July at Isleham.

Please see Sunnica leaflet and Sunnica's website for more information.
