Lincolnshire pig farm plans considered

Planners are due to meet to decide on two controversial applications to allow about 1,960 pigs to be housed at a pig farm in Lincolnshire.

West Lindsey District Council planners will discuss the proposals at a meeting on Wednesday evening.

They deferred a decision last month on the plans for the site at South Kelsey near Market Rasen.

There are applications for two units - each for 980 pigs - which would be built on Holme Hill Farm.

Previously, Jenny Stimson, clerk of South Kelsey Parish Council, said she had concerns about the smell, and traffic generated by the pig units.
