LOCAL residents are being invited to a meeting about a proposed development at Little Acres and the wider issues that could affect Exmoor National Park.

The meeting on Wednesday June 29, at 7pm, will discuss plans for Little Acres to set up a rare breed poultry farm and horticultural business involving temporary siting of a caravan and erection of two polytunnels and three buildings including chicken brooder house, vegetable washing and handling facility, and storage and workshop building, plus installation of solar panels and the construction of two dew ponds.

The application has caused controversy in the area and local people have expressed concern about a number of issues. These include: protection of hedgerows, keeping the public informed, speeding up the planning process and scrutiny and the role of ENP.

Dean Kinsella, head of Exmoor National Park Authority planning, will attend. She will give a brief summary of what has occurred, the current situation and possible future outcomes and consequences.

All attendees can express their opinions and raise questions.

By the end of the meeting it is hoped to find a consensus of opinion for the next course of action. Those wanting to be invited on-stage to make a statement and then take questions from the gathered audience should notify the organisers ahead of time.

Spokespersons from local parish councillors will attend, including: Richard Bishop (Treborough), Dave Powell (Luxborough) and Steve Egger (Roadwater).
