Proposals to build poultry units for up to 360,000 birds in Docking!!!

This sounds horrendous!!!

"Residents in a West Norfolk village say they have been kept in the dark over proposals" So let's raise awareness of this to everyone in North West Norfolk and beyond.

I understand this is right next to Peddar's Way and is between Sedgeford and Docking. Can you imagine the smell, increase in traffic on these narrow rural roads, eyesore on the landscape and impact of disturbance to wildlife and birds!

If you object to having a industrial scale chicken factory plonked in the middle of a wildlife sensitive area, please contact your local council and object!!! I have just emailed my local MP. Apparently the council have now given more time for objections to this proposed scheme, so get emailing and writing! http://www.norfolk.gov.uk/

  1. Couldn't find anything on the main County Hall site...
    but I did find this for a Breckland descision further south...

    which was also alongside the Peddars Way...

    I am a life-member of NWT so will be emailing them...
    they must surely get themselves involved in this!!
