Horsmonden 'industrial' chicken farm plan withdrawn


An egg producer has withdrawn plans to build a chicken farm in Kent big enough to accommodate 64,000 birds.

Fridays said it withdrew plans for a free range operation at Horsmonden because Tunbridge Wells Borough Council wanted further technical information.
