Campaigners hoping to block plans for the first ‘Super Dairy’ in Wales have organised an emergency meeting in light of the new plans submitted by young farmer Fraser Jones.
 
The Campaign Against Leighton Farm expansion (CALFe) has organised a public meeting on March 8 at 7pm in the Leighton Village Hall to discuss the new application which has taken into account comments made by the original objectors.
 
Campaigner Holly Dyer said: “Please come along and listen to the changes that have been made to the plans. People must be aware that as this is a new application, any objections made to the previous plans will not be valid. You must re-object. We are in a 42-day consultation period that ends towards the end of March, objections must be received by then. Please come along on Tuesday to find out how the alterations could affect your village.”
 
Mr Jones has vowed to press on with his plans insisting that current methods of dairy farming are simply not sustainable and would put farmers like him out of business.
 
A spokesperson for Powys County Council told mywelshpool last night: “Mr Jones was advised to withdraw his initial application and re-submit because of fundamental changes. The new application has been submitted with a closing date for comments by April 8.”
