D-DAY is looming for controversial plans for a solar farm near Wix.

Kinetica Solar wants to place more than 50,000 solar panels on land at Burnt Ash Farm, off Spinnels Lane.

The plans for the 63-acre site have been recommended for approval by planning officers at Tendring Council.

They had been expected to go before the planning committee in April but the decision was deferred due to issues surrounding the national planning policy.

The decision will be made at Tendring Council’s planning committee on Tuesday.
