Durrants, in collaboration with Quality Equipment based in Bury St Edmunds, secured planning permission for a pig finishing unit on a farm in Stoven, Norfolk.
The approved development includes a 900sqm building housing 1000 pig places on a straw based rearing system. The building features gale breaker adjustable curtains to control airflow for optimum animal comfort with the added benefit of diluting and dispersing odour dust, limiting environmental and amenity impacts.
Key challenges including addressing landscape character impact and neighbour amenity concerns. The Waveney Council’s Planning Committee voted unanimously in favour of the development in August 2016.
