Villagers celebrate following unexpected withdrawal of planning application for a second mega chicken farm in Thoroton




Villagers are celebrating after the unexpected withdrawal of a planning application for a second mega chicken farm on their doorstep.

Plans were submitted for four large chicken sheds ­— with a rolling capacity of 220,000 birds at a time ­— ­on land west of Main Street, Thoroton, by farmer Richard Ogden, who already operates eight large sheds nearby.

If granted, the two farms combined would have yielded 660,000 birds at a time.
