Traditional Norfolk Poultry (TNP) has accepted the Parish Council's invitation to come to the next Council Meeting to be questioned about their development on Breckles Heath.
For nearly two years now, TNP has been constructing and operating a woodland poultry farm to raise up to 40,000 chickens and turkeys on its site on Breckles Heath.
The site, which includes a designated County Wildlife Site, is surrounded by Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Special Areas of Conservation and Special Protection Areas.
TNP ignored the Breckland Council officers who said that they must obtain Planning Permission, so that eventually an Enforcement Order was issued. They appealed against this, but this was rejected by the Planning Inspector. So only then did they submit planning applications.
Now Mark Gorton and Simon Guise from TNP, together with their agent, have agreed to come and answer questions and points from the Parish Council. The Council has already submitted a detailed objection to Breckland Council which you can read here.
Members of the public are encouraged to read this objection, and come to the meeting on Monday, 14 October, at 7.30 p.m. in Caston Village Hall, The Street, Caston, NR17 1DD.
This is an opportunity to question the need for this development in such and important part of the Brecks, right alongside the Peddars Way National Trail.
