UK-based company Good Energy has secured full planning consent for its 49.9MW solar farm in West Raynham, near Fakenham, Norfolk.

Being built on a disused airfield, the proposed solar park would generate enough electricity to power around 11,287 homes.

With the latest project approval, the company now has a cumulative total of 133MW of solar approved in 2013.

In December 2013, Good Energy was awarded the provisional planning consent by the planning committee at North Norfolk District Council.

The board is exploring various options for the site including potential partners for the possible sale or the solar farm development by the company.

Good Energy founder and CEO Juliet Davenport said, "This site will not only help Norfolk achieve its renewable energy targets, but will also see benefits to local people via a community fund and to the surrounding environment with a bespoke ecological plan for the site which has been disused for almost 20 years."
