A planning application has been made for 2 broiler farms at Ash. We oppose this development for environmental, health and welfare reasons.

Poultry facilities are a source of odour and attract flies, rodents and other pests that create local nuisances and carry disease.

The Animal Production and Health Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations state that poultry farms adversely affect the life of people living in the vicinity. 

Compassion In World Farming reports that, in intensive chicken farms, the physical and mental well-being and natural living of the animals is compromised by overcrowding in filthy conditions, barren environments, and rapid growth. 

Local business owners and residents oppose the planning application and need money for a website (, leaflets and leaflet distribution, banners and any other materials or activities that become necessary to stop the development.

Let's make 'Stop Ash Chicken Farm' happen
