Mad Bovine Foolery in the Planning Department

‘Battery’ dairy of 8,000 cows sparks protests

"The council said that any objections on animal welfare grounds could not be considered as valid reasons for refusing the application."

So, let me get this straight? Putting aside the specific issue of the overly intensive farming here, people aren't even allowed to question the ethics of this?

Our planning laws must be really perverted if they can stop wind turbines in there hundreds for all sorts of weird and wonderful reasons, but it has no power to stop ethically questionable industries.
