More pig farm woes

A GROUP of Kybong and The Dawn residents is considering legal action over the removal of council restrictions on a proposed rotational pig and chook farm at Kybong.

Residents will meet again at 7pm on Wednesday.

One of them, Judie Venz, claims council planners erred in reporting the nearest affected home was 240m, when there was a home 190m away.

She said numerous properties would be affected downwind of the operation.

Save the Mary River Co-ordinating Group president Glenda Pickersgill claims the applicant is wrong to claim the plan meets national guidelines on separation from residential areas, which recommended a 500m buffer.
