Noise protests over silos
2:30pm Friday 14th December 2012 in News
TWO animal feed silos installed without planning permission have sparked noise protests.
The silos are right on the edge of a 65-acre field between Fordingbridge and Whitsbury and are only a few feet from two houses.
Pig farmer Mark Nutting has applied for planning permission to retain them and add a third.
But objectors told members of New Forest District Council’s planning committee that it took almost one-and-a-half hours to fill the two existing silos.
And feed hitting the inside of the containers made a loud clattering sound, councillors were told.
The committee agreed that the silos should be moved and deferred the application to enable officers to negotiate with the applicant.
