UK - Councillors yesterday backed residents in their opposition to plans to reinstate a rural waste site. Attleborough-based Banham Poultry hopes to bring disused buildings at Clay Hall Farm, Great Witchingham, near Norwich, back into operation to dispose of chicken waste. The plant has been out of use since 2003 after environment-al constraints were placed on the previous owners, the Pimllott family. Residents now fear the previous bad smells, traffic problems and environmental hazards which blighted surrounding villages such as Great Witchingham, Lenwade and Alderford in the past, could return. Norfolk County Council will have the final say on whether to approve the proposals but yesterday Breckland Council was asked to comment as a neighbouring authority. Source:
