The permit for the Brick House Harm project was granted last week by the Shropshire Council's planning committee. According to the report, the authorization was approved after the developer redesigned the project in order to fulfill problems connected to the loss of high quality agricultural land.

The Brick House Harm photovoltaic or pv (PV) park will be installed southwest of the hamlet of Greete, near the town of Ludlow. While the preliminary proposal was for a plant with a capacity of 49.9 MW, Bluefield has removed panels from 4 parcels designated as "ideal and also most versatile" (BMV) agricultural land.

In its first layout, the solar park was planned to cover 54 ha (133 acres) of land and generate electricity for about 15,000 homes. The change has actually eliminated some 15.4 ha of BMV land areas.
