12/01847/OUT Poultry Farm & Slaughterhouse Outline Planning Application
Cut and paste the content from our blog and add your own thoughts. Consider that from nearby Cardea say outside Morrisons Supermarket to the ritual slaughterhouse, its direct line of sight!
STOP PRESS Cllr Harper is belatedly ( err a few years too late) attempting to claw back some credibility by launching his own 'party political' petition against the mass chicken slaughterhouse soon to be part of our neighbourhood.
Don't be fooled, use your rights!
IT PAYS TO COMPLAIN DIRECT have your detailed concerns LEGALLY included in the formal planning committee bundle rather than being reduced to just a number.
Asleep at the wheel or too busy counting up the allowances? Suddenly after a few years of inactivity, Park Farm resident Cllr (call me Chris) Harper (Conservative) South Stanground -aka Cllr Turnip - has finally -some five years late - woken up to the fact that he, as chair of planning, didn't bother to consult and find out about this huge poultry (halal) slaughterhouse, put out to public consultation in 2012 (FIVE YEARS AGO).
ONE of the objections stated:
Mr Martin The Old Rectory Haddon Peterborough PE7 3TR (Objects)
What is Halal?
Animals must be alive and healthy at the time of slaughter and all blood is drained from the carcass. During the process, a Muslim will recite a dedication, know as tasmiya or shahada.
There is debate about elements of halal, such as whether stunning is allowed.
Stunning cannot be used to kill an animal, according to the Halal Food Authority (HFA), a non-profit organisation that monitors adherence to halal principles. But it can be used if the animal survives and is then killed by halal methods, the HFA adds.

Clearly the whole of Cardea is in the firing line for the smell and issues arriving from the ritual slaughter of many thousands of birds. Just think of the extra traffic! Add this to the outstanding issues of burning rubbish at the brickworks. Clearly Cllr Harper cannot dodge this one, the brickwork chimneys have been smoking out dioxins since the 1930's! Nothing has been done about that either.
Now we have what is possibly a huge halal slaughterhouse for ritually slaughtering millions of chickens...
Below is one of the documents from the agents dated 2012. This is a document Cllr Harper CON Stanground South should have made himself aware of back in 2012.
Purchasers of new houses on Cardea might like to ask why this did not register with Peterborough and why this did not appear on the legal searches. Clearly Cardea property will nosedive in value if a halal slaughterhouse for poultry is built.
Still Cardea will be known for the smell of chicken and chips. Not forgetting the Mc Cains factory just over the road and the mushroom processing plant just up the road a bit. Then we have the anaerobic digester plant taking in sewerage from miles around . Nice one Chris and your re-election is just over a year away
PROPOSED POULTRY FARM AND SLAUGHTERHOUSE at KINGS DELPH DROVE, FARCET, PETERBOROUGH for MR N HUSSAIN
Cllr Chris Harper CON Stanground South...a bit slow,by a few years, but quick to vote himself a whopping payrise
"I have been made aware of this planning application this morning (APRIL 11 2017) in the adjacent authority area and have asked our own planning department and the county councillors to perform some investigation work."
Apart from the obvious concerns we might have with the application detail itself, I also want to know why once again Peterborough wasn't notified about this application when it is so close to our boundary and particularly our ward? Something as I understand it, is the normal etiquette with other surrounding authorities. More information as I have it.
Its taken Cllr Harper CON, Stanground South five years to come up with the above response, look what the Peterborough Tribune found in under five minutes:
Comments on Consultation Responses to HDC at End of Consultation Period
The Planning Application Programme
The Planning Application was received and validated by Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) on 22 November 2012 and was allocated the reference number 1201847OUT.
Consultations to interested parties and Authorities were issued in the normal way, with a terminal date of 28 December 2012 for any comments to be returned to HDC.
Comments on Responses Returned to HDC
1. CCC Archaeology
2. Environment Agency
It is accepted that, in view of the comments on the potential archaeological importance of the site, an archaeological investigation clause will be included on any forthcoming Planning Approval.
The EA have requested a FRA. A preliminary examination of the likely flood risk on the application site has already been undertaken by Messrs Morgan Tucker Consulting Engineers within which it is stated…. “They [the EA] have since advised that they do not have any information for this site, and have also confirmed that in the event that a planning application was made, would not wish to comment on the application” This seems however, not now to be the case since an objection has been made on the basis that no FRA has been submitted. The EA will be contacted directly for confirmation that it has had an opportunity to read the Morgan Tucker Report. Clarification of what, if anything, is actually required is considered to
3. Environmental Health
4. Highway Authority
5. Mr Jeff Sargent
6. Steven Twelvetree

be necessary before this objection can be dealt with.
It is noted that this response is not an objection and should not therefore impede the satisfactory progress of the Planning Application. All elements of the preliminary advice offered by EH are in hand and will be dealt with at the appropriate time(s). Preliminary reports have already been commissioned on the very concerns raise by EH and will be continued in detailed form following an Outline Planning Approval.
It is noted that no traffic / transportation objections have been raised and comments made should not therefore impede the satisfactory progress of the Planning Application. Due note is taken of the general advice given which will be dealt with at the appropriate time(s)
All issues raised by Mr Sargent have been taken into consideration during the feasibility stage of this proposal. Preliminary reports from Specialist Consultants have been commissioned to ensure that there are no problems in principle to the proposed development, although it will of course be necessary to examine all issues of noise, traffic and pollution at the appropriate detail design stage to ensure that there is no unacceptable loss of amenity to surrounding residents. It can also be seen above that all Authorities charged with protecting the environment have been consulted and, subject to detail design and detailed reports, have no objection to the proposals. In particular, whilst heavy good vehicles passing through Farcet itself was never intended, Highways have already picked up this point and required all commercial vehicular access to be from the east of the site.
Please see comments made on similar points above, in response to Mr Sargent’s representation. Street lighting and footpaths are not a requirement in the countryside. There are very few other residences in the locality outside the defined limits of Farcet that could in any way be disadvantaged by the proposal.
Please see comments made on similar points above, in response to Mr Sargent’s and Mr Twelvetree’s representations. All such fears are understandable, but the associated issues are in the hands of the Specialist Consultants and the various Authorities
Please see comments made on identical points above.
This is a more thorough response, but makes similar
10. Richard Corney, Joan Fisher Denise Ireson and Philip Hall
statements, albeit in greater depth, to those above. It is appreciated that more detailed investigation must be undertaken at the appropriate stage, and it may be that insurmountable obstacles cannot be discounted. The process of new development recognises the broader issues which may result from development proposals. The fear that unacceptable situations will arise as a natural outcome of this proposal is understandable, but unfounded. All issues will be exhaustively addressed as the proposal moves forward.
Please see comments made on identical points above.
It is clear that external Agencies and nearby inhabitants have not raised issues of substance in Planning terms that are not already in the process of investigation, and which in almost all cases are not seen as being fundamentally problematic by both Specialist Consultants and Authorities alike. There is equally no reason in Local Plan terms to resist and application at Outline stage which is shown not to be harmful to its setting and surroundings.
It is intended that discussions will take place with the EA to deal with the only apparent objection of significance at this stage with the object of removing the objection.
It is now contended that the proposal overall is deemed generally to be acceptable and that preparations for the issue of an Outline Planning Approval could be begun.
