Plans for huge 'eco park' at Sleaford chicken farm go on display

Plans for an "eco-park" on the site of an "unpopular" chicken farm in Lincolnshire are to go on display.

Residents in the village of Sleaford will have the first glimpse on Wednesday of a 230-acre solar farm by renewable energy firm, Kinetica Solar.

The park at Boiling Wells Farm will include solar panels, nature trails, woodlands and an education centre.

The proposals come a year after the poultry farm opened, with a capacity to house up to 83,000 chickens.

Guy Bebbington, projects director, said the facility would provide much-needed leisure facilities for the local community.
