Disappointment for campaigners against intensive poultry unit

Tasley Chicken Factory Farm Action Group were delighted after the Court of Appeal quashed a planning application for a unit housing a quarter of a million broiler chickens, on the grounds that odour and dust from the manure had not been properly considered.  Our sister organisation, Shropshire CPRE, was also involved in the legal action.

Now a revised application for the site near Bridgnorth has been submitted, whereby the 2,300 tonnes of chicken litter produced by the farm each year will be fed into a biodigester.  The action group need as many people as possible to support them and preferably send an objection to the Council.  For more details and for help in filing an objection, visit their Facebook page.
