And finally… chicken run
East Lothian Council’s Planning Committee has granted permission for a chicken underpass at Howden Farm, Gifford.
Submitted by East Lothian Eggs Ltd, the application had been called off the Scheme of Delegation list by Councillor Collins due to local concerns raised.
The applicants now have permission to construct an underpass beneath the B6368 public road, in order to access extra space for chickens to roam. The tunnel will be 18 metres long, 2.5 metres wide and 1.5 metres deep, linking the roaming areas to the north and south via earth ramps. The public road will be reinstated following the works.
