Plans for north Norfolk agricultural building

Proposals have been put forward to change an agricultural building into a meat smokehouse.

The application is to change the use of one of the barns at Hall Farm in Skeyton near Swanton Abbott to enable the smoking of turkey meat produced on the farm.

No meat will be brought on to the farm from other holdings and the proposal will not lead to the retailing of meat from the site.

The meat which has been processed and smoked, will be transported to other outlets for sale.

A planning application submitted to North Norfolk District Council by Rob Morton from Morton's Traditional Taste, states: 'The operation is deliberately a small-scale family business and the proposal will not lead to any material increase in the amount of traffic generated by the existing business on the site.'

The plans are currently under consultation.
