A solar farm could be built on a 29 hectare site (72 acre) near Bishops Itchington under fresh plans.

Big60Million Ltd wants permission to build the "ground mounted" farm on fields at Elms Farm, off Plough Lane.

It would take four months to construct, operate for 25 years and generate 11,136 MWh annually - enough to power 3,375 homes.

Stratford-upon-Avon District Council has launched a consultation over the proposals.
