Solar panels could be set to cover more than 70 hectares of farmland next to the A50. No plans have yet been submitted for the solar farm in Upper Leigh, but pre-application advice has been sought from both East Staffordshire Borough Council (ESBC) and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC).
