Banham Poultry plans new factory

Banham Poultry is seeking to move its processing plant in Allteborough out of the town and back to its former site at Bunns Bank.

In 2013 Banham Poultry lodged a similar application to build the replacement factory, which was granted permission.

The latest proposal is for a 20,200 square metre processing plant, around 5,000 square metres larger than initially planned, and would include new equipment to manage odour and emissions.The former factory at Bunns Bank was destroyed by a fire in 1998.

Last year Banham Poultry was bought out of administration by Chesterfield Poultry for £4.4m, securing more than 1,000 jobs.
