Author Topic: Chicken Farm Planning Application Strande Lane  (Read 50716 times)

Anyone else heard the rumour about a proposed chicken farm in Strande/Lightlands Lane?  There aren't any planning application notices up (or there weren't when I looked), but then with our council perhaps they've just not got around to putting them up yet.

Hope the perches will be high. Ducks might be more appropriate. Smiley

The local foxes have stated that they will not pose any objections to the RBWM.

It's all in the planning applications above.

So, an application has been made and no legally required application notices are in evidence.  Care for another council whitewash anyone?

To follow hot on the heels of the Holyport school funds fiasco and Bridleway 19.

I suggest anyone with comments get in quick!

Does seem to me that this is more than slightly mad - what on earth is the proprietor going to do with a load of chickens when the flood waters begin to rise?  Stupid place to even be suggesting a chicken farm. I'd hoped the rumour I'd heard was just the local grapevine getting it all wrong, but no someone has indeed decided to ignore the flooding risk and put a load of chickens at risk of death by drowning.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all in favour of a bit of enterprise, but in this location - madness.  Even the horses down there had to leave when it flooded and they've got considerably longer legs than chickens.

I live on Strande Park and have these planners have any idea how smelly and noisy it will be with all those chickens clacking away. I for one hope it is thrown out. Roll Eyes and it will probably encourage rats

Perhaps they will decide to have duck eggs instead.

Yep, it certainly is in the planning applications, but if no-one bothers to put the little yellow notices up how is anyone to know?  If the notices are missing I don't suppose letters will have been sent out either.  Usual council inefficiency leading to the electorate suffering the consequences.

Not so Monty. I used to keep chickens myself. In fact there is someone in Grange Road who has twenty five chickens who run in and out of the house.

I don't think you can compare 25 chickens to a chicken farm.  Looking at the planning application this sort of outfit should not be located in close proximity to  a residential area .
