The plan state that this development would not have any “detrimental impact on residential amenity,
highways landscape character, flood risk, drainage and ground contamination”.

The documents add: “Rather this development will lead to an enhancement, ensuring that the existing dairy farm and all of the impact that the operation have on the village in terms of traffic, noise and smell will be removed.”
