After his parents passed away when he was 15, my client left school to take over operation of the family poultry farm.
His goal was to establish a very large poultry farm, and he set about finding the right property. He located an appropriate piece of land and made a development application to start the process – however, the application was not successful.
Poultry farm developments often meet with resistance, due to a lack of understanding about impacts like odour and noise, which leads to an unwarranted fear of these projects.
I dealt with the numerous issues raised by Council trying to defeat my client’s proposal, and his application was approved – allowing him to achieve his goal and scale up the farm.
