Nocton mega-dairy update

Since the petition delivery last week lots of us have been in touch wondering whats happening now with the mega-dairy plans. A date hasn’t yet been set for a decision, but we’re expecting it to be in early March.

However, the businesses behind the mega-dairy were dealt a blow earlier this week.The Environment agency delivered its submission to the Council, raising its concerns and objection to the plans. This is great news for cows, the enviroment and local farmers.
