Viva! launch mass objection to dairy 'prison' in Lincolnshire

Register your objection.

 Viva! has learnt about plans to develop the UK’s largest dairy farm in Norton Heath, south Lincolnshire.

The application would see 8,100 cows imprisoned in sheds for the majority of their lives, the equivalent of battery farming cows. If allowed to go ahead it would set the scene for an animal welfare and environmental disaster.

Viva! will be doing everything in their power to ensure the development by Nocton Dairies be thrown out by North Kesteven District Council planners.

But as of yet – only one objection has been made to the planning application – which is available online – so Viva! need as many people as possible to now log on to their website and voice their disagreement. You have to log in to leave a comment.


Read the report on this application from the Farmers’ Guardian.

Join Viva!'s Facebook group against Nocton Dairy’s application.
