A large free range egg production facility on the edge of Wymondham has been given the go-ahead, despite noise, smell and traffic concerns.
The scheme at Cavick House Farm, in Cavick Road, will create a 16,000 bird poultry farm to meet the growing demand for free range eggs.
The proposals were approved by South Norfolk Councillors who deemed that the development would not be detrimental to the nearby conservation area and listed farm building.
The application received four letters of objection from neighbours concerned about odours from the farm and an increase of vehicle movements on Cavick Road.
