Planning committee gives green light to electricity project

Barnstaple’s Queens Theatre is to have 40 state-of-the-art solar panels fitted to its flat roof.

The plans for the 1.7 metre panels to be put onto the roof were passed unanimously by North Devon Council’s planning committee.

Committee chairman Cllr Eric Ley said it would be ‘difficult to actually see the panels’ from ground level, while they would generate a significant amount of electricity.
