A twenty year plan for wind and solar farms in Cornwall is branded "incomprehensible."

The council's launching a public consulation - asking what locals want it to do.

But it's based on a report and five annexes which contain more than forty local breakdowns.

Campaigners say there is no way people will sift through hundreds of pages.

Members of the public can have their say on the documents as part of a consultation taking place from today until 5pm on Friday 20 December.

“We recognise the opportunities which Cornwall’s unique landscape offers, and the benefits of renewable energy generation,” said Councillor Edwina Hannaford, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for Environment, Heritage and Planning. 

“However, the development of renewable energy generation installations across Cornwall needs to be managed carefully to achieve the greatest contribution towards our energy needs, while at the same time ensuring that the important characteristics of the Cornish landscape are not unacceptably harmed.

“The guidance will provide an extremely useful tool to help ensure all relevant parties have the same understanding of the best approach for these developments in Cornwall.”
