Residents of the small hamlet of Broadhayes near Stockland are outraged to learn that East Devon District Council have spent hundreds of thousands of pounds carrying out landscaping works and forcing the owners Bright Farming Ltd to comply with conditions on the neighbouring Broadhayes Farm, an intensive pig unit. So outraged at the state of the farm local Residents have already successfully complained to the Local Government Ombudsman, who has concluded that insuffucnt landscaping had been done to comply with an earlier Planning Permission. It is now apparent that inorder to satisfy the Ombudsman, East Devon District Council have employed Contractors to carry out the landscaping and its maintence. To add insult to injury EDDC are now going to pay to have the landscaping removed so as the farmers can erect more intensive livestock buildings. Residents complain of being unable to open windows because of noise smell and flies. They describe the farm as a "shanty town or worse still a third world village". In view of recient events residents will be instigating a Judicial Review into the Councils handling of matters at Broadhayes Farm.

Residents have already successfully campaigned to stop the farm from milking cows and breading pigs. For further information and photos contact Robin Bright 01404 881 603.
