Beechcroft Farm, Chicken Sheds (20/02772/LDCPR)

Planning Law

Statement on Beechcroft Farm Chicken Farms

The site of the application is pretty much where the "Yoke" of "West Yoke" is written on this map.

This application was to confirm validity of existing permissions to farm chickens on the site. These permissions date back to the 1960s. While it would be unlikely for such a permission to be granted today, subsequent nearby building (of the village) cannot invalidate prior permission. Our environmental health team will work with the owners to mitigate the impact on nearby residents.
