Members of the Committee expressed their concerns in respect of the proximity of the development to the neighbouring farm and sewage treatment plant and the likely odour, noise, dust and flies which would emanate from them. Although mitigation measures to eliminate odour and noise were proposed, members of the Committee did not consider that these were adequate and that the amenity of the future residents of the development would be affected.

‘the amenity of residents should not be significantly affected by noise, odour or dust resulting from the activities of the neighbouring farm;’
