Best Laid Plans
Tunbridge Wells Planning Committee has given its unanimous support to allow Fridays Ltd to modernise and expand their Combwell free range egg farm, in the High Weald AONB near Flimwell, in Kent.
DHA worked closely with the Fridays team to prepare an application for the replacement of twelve outdated poultry houses with three larger modern buildings. These will benefit from mechanical egg collection, ventilation and manure management systems to ensure enhanced levels of welfare for the laying hens and to help address the continued growth of the UK free range egg industry. The scheme includes the planting of 14,000 trees and shrubs and was commended by Members.
