Parish calls for changes to cattle shed planSeveral residents have expressed reservations about plans for a 474 square metre expansion of the cattle sheds at Callers Farm, Clayhidon planned by the Drew family.
Clayhidon Parish Council voted on 15 June to support the application subject to restrictions.
It called for full landscaping of all sides of the building that are visible across the valley, and for a darker grey concrete side and roofing material to be used. If there is lighting to the building, then any potential light pollution should be mitigated so that it is not visible from across the valley.
