Parishioners Protest Against Proposed Poultry Farm



Strong protests against a proposed new poultry farm were voiced at this week’s meeting of Rempstone Parish Council. (Tuesday, November 14)


The planning application by Sunrise Poultry Farms Ltd had only been brought to the notice of the council with minimum notice and without supporting documentation, as the proposed development lies within Hoton Parish.


On the west side of Rempstone Road, the proposed development site runs along the county border between Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire within Charnwood but will have a greater impact upon the residents of Rempstone which lies within Rushcliffe.


The application seeks permission for the site to be developed with two buildings to accommodate 64,000 free-range hens plus employee accommodation.


Amongst the objections raised, include the impact the development would have on the environment in terms of odour and noise pollution. The mechanical ventilation system proposed for the buildings would mean any smell would be blown downwind towards the village.


Also discussed was the increased traffic movement onto an already busy A60 and concerns over the spread of viruses such as Avian Flu. Rempstone has ongoing gravel extraction along the Ashby Road and the pits at the CEMEX quarry site attract a great many birds, which could potentially spread viruses to hens.


The development site slopes towards the King’s Brook and issues concerning pollution from the land and maintaining existing footpaths which are regularly used by residents and ramblers were also of deep concern.


Further discussion was on the visual impact on the environment not only for residents facing the site but in particular Stanford Hall, which is being developed as the £300 million Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) the state of the art facility for disabled servicemen.


County Councillor John Cottee and Borough Councillor Reg Adair attended the meeting but neither had been made aware of the proposed development, which will have a major impact on the area they serve.


A vote amongst the public and councilors was unanimous in objecting to the development. The Parish Council is now working with local residents to investigate the application further and will lobby local MPs to support their objections.
