  • The applicant, Chris Down, has now taken his proposal to appeal.

    This means that the planning inspectorate will now consider the application, although a date has not yet been fixed.

    The application drew almost 200 objections from nearby residents.

    The application included two large buildings and a large slurry “lagoon.”

    EDDC rejected the application last October, on visual impact grounds as well as a potential impact on a site of special scientific interest – Aylesbeare Common.

    The field is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
