Poultry Farm Consultation

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) draft permit consultation for a poultry unit in Upper Heath, Nr Presteigne, Powys.

The application, from D L and M Rogers and Sons, is for a permit to operate a poultry unit of 80,000 chickens.

NRW will only grant a permit if we believe that significant pollution will not be caused and the operator has the ability to meet the conditions of the permit. Any permit we grant will include appropriate conditions to protect human health and the environment.

Dave Powell Operations Manager at Natural Resources Wales said:

“We have consulted professional partners and specialists, but we would welcome further comments from the local community so we can address their concerns."

“If we do allow the permit, it will contain strict conditions to protect people and the environment, and will be regulated by our officers for as long as it operates.”

The permit will include conditions to regulate:

  • Odours
  • Emissions
  • Noise

The draft permit and draft decision document have been placed on the public register for consultation, and is available at the following location:
