More than 26,000 of you took action last month to ask Wychavon District Council to refuse planning permission for a cruel new chicken factory farm in Worcestershire. And the council listened!
Council members voted unanimously against the proposal to build an intensive broiler chicken unit in the village of Upton Snodsbury, which would have confined 160,000 birds at a time to filthy, crowded sheds. Applause actually broke out in the council chamber when this excellent decision was announced.
