Councillors support concerns of Great Ponton villagers over chicken farm but delay final decision
A decision on plans for a controversial chicken farm has been put back after councillors said they are minded to refuse it.
Members of the planning committee at South Kesteven District Council said they supported the concerns of villagers in Great Ponton, which is close to the site of the proposed farm to house 270,000 chickens at any one time.
Most members of the committee agreed the site was unsuitable for the farm and would potentially cause problems for nearby residents.
