A DECISION over a controversial solar farm with more than 50,000 panels in Wix has been delayed.

Tendring Council’s planning committee was expected to make a decision on the plans for Burnt Ash Farm on Spinnel’s Lane on Tuesday night.

A spokesman for Tendring Council said: “The application has been deferred from planning committee this evening in order to address a number of issues there are contained within the recent National planning and policy guidance – planning for renewable and low carbon energy.”
