Please provide your comments on the environmental permit application received from Newcome-Baker Farms Limited (Required)
I see the objectors to this proposal are trying to use the granting of an IPPC licence as a means to stop the development of the site and are urging people to write in to object, hence trying to overturn the legitimate decision made by the Borough's Planning Committee. Their Chairman stated "that if we can get enough conditions, we can make it uneconomic and unviable" Newcome-Baker Farms must adhere to any condition that would be applied to any similar poultry farm, by the EA, and the applicant must ensure that they impinge upon their local environment as little as possible, and ensure that all their activities meet their legal requirements. However the granting of the licence should not be a re-run of the planning process which has already been approved by some margin (9-4 in favour), and this process must not be used to circumnavigate planning decisions lawfully made.
