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.
