Agricultural buildings and a temporary agricultural workers dwelling approved

We are pleased to report that planning permission for two large agricultural buildings for the rearing of pigs and an associated agricultural workers dwelling was unanimously approved by Shropshire Council’s Northern Planning Committee on 5 October 2016.  There had been significant opposition to the scheme including over 200 letters of objection from neighbours, animal rights activists and professional planning and transport consultants.

The two agricultural buildings will be similar to the image below.
