Glenrath Farms chicken shed plan approved

Councillors have approved amended plans for a large poultry shed to house 44,000 chickens in the Scottish Borders.

They had deferred a decision on the proposal by Glenrath Farms at Whim Farm near Lamancha last month.

They sought further information from environmental health experts and also wanted to visit the site.

Scottish Borders Council officials had recommended approval of the scheme as they did at a previous meeting.
