Poultry planning success at Berrys’ Hereford Office

Published January 16th, 2018

Nine new poultry sites have been given the go-ahead recently in the Herefordshire area thanks to leading property, business and planning firm Berrys.

In the past three months Berrys’ Hereford office has been successful in gaining planning permission on nine poultry sites in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, and Powys.

Out of the nine units getting the go-ahead, three were granted at appeal, of which one was awarded costs for the appeal process.

“With poultry applications being under increasing scrutiny, planners at Berrys have focused on providing detailed reports supported by technical assessments to ensure that applications submitted demonstrate full compliance with planning policy and environmental impact,” said Graham Clark, a planning consultant at the Hereford office of Berrys.

“In addition, the developments proposed are of a high standard with many of them going well beyond what is required in order to protect the surrounding environment,” he explained.

An excellent example is a poultry site at Bowling Green Farm near Hereford  which shows what farmers are doing to ensure that their developments can work efficiently and in a manner that has minimal effect on the local area.

“The proposal here included the planting of over 5,000 new trees, which will help screen the buildings from view and provide habitat for species improving the biological diversity in the area,” Graham said.

The attention to detail offered by Berrys ensures that applications are completed to a high standard which enables the best possible result for the applicant.
