Work has stopped on the development of a solar farm in Silverstone after council officials realised it was not being built in line with original plans.

A spokesman for South Northamptonshire Council said: “It was brought to our attention the solar farm was not in accordance with the approved plans.

“Officers immediately asked the developer to cease work.”

It was discovered the number of rows of panels was different from that shown on the approved plans.

The applicant has now applied to amend the planning permission.

If the revised scheme was refused, the council would take enforcement action if the developer did not revert back to the original scheme.
