Newbald Parish Council is very sad to hear of the passing of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (1921-2021). Our thoughts and condolences are with the Queen and the whole Royal Family. He was a truly remarkable man who dedicated his life to serve our nation. May he rest in peace.
A Major U-Turn Sees Full Planning Permission Granted for Pig Facility
Despite our best efforts, and after initially turning it down, ERYC has granted permission for the proposed pig farm down Cliffe Road to go ahead.
While we normally support rural businesses, we consider this development to be inappropriate. It will be detrimental to the environment, wildlife, residential amenity, existing businesses and the highway.
About 100 people objected to this development.
Granting this application is totally at odds with ERYC’s bid to have our region declared a national ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. It also does not fit with the Government’s drive to reduce greenhouse gases and protect the environment.
One resident is pursuing a judicial review to challenge ERYC’s handling of the case. Her legal arguments are strong. We fully support her.
