Have your say

Why is it that the people of this country want to get rid of our green and pleasant land, wanting to cover the land in houses and solar farms?

How many house roofs do we have in this country doing absolutely nothing? It should be that only when every roof is covered with solar panels can they put them on the ground and then only when the ground can’t be used for anything else, like landfill sites.

Also, it should be part of the planning procedure that all new buildings must be fitted with solar panels, otherwise planning should be denied, whether this be domestic or industrial buildings.
