Councillors have given approval of the planning application for a 150 kilowatts Photovoltaic (PV) array of 390 solar panels on the roof of the Council offices at Cromer.

By using these panels the Council will be making use of a sustainable power source and cutting down on their reliance on fossil fuels. 

The decision was made at the first North Norfolk District Council Development Committee meeting of the New Year held today.

Cllr. Karen Ward, Portfolio Holder Planning & Housing said: 

“The benefits to the environment in terms of energy savings are good news for North Norfolk residents. The Committee was reassured that all necessary measures had been taken to minimise the visual impact of this installation on the surrounding AONB (Area of outstanding Natural Beauty).”
