Carver

Neighbors in dark as solar plan advances

Continue reading below

After the Planning Board approved minor modifications to a solar farm in North Carver, Great Meadow Drive neighbors have complained to selectmen that they were not notified that the board was considering the plan. The proposed solar installation on former bog land off Purchase Street was previously blocked by the Zoning Board of Appeals. However developer Borrego Solar challenged the ruling in court and town officials and the company reached an agreement to scale back the development. Following legally required public postings of an upcoming hearing, the Planning Board approved changes to Borrego’s plan that shrank the project by 30 percent and required a berm and tree barrier between the project and its nearest neighbors. However, some neighbors told selectmen they should have been directly notified that the plan was back in play. The residents still have the right to appeal a building permit before any construction can begin.
