The appeal will be processed by the government’s planning inspectorate, with no date of decision in place yet.

Residents previously set up a petition and a group, People in Grandborough say No Pigs, to oppose the plans, which would see the building of two barns to house up to 1,250 pigs each, a slurry store and feed bins on land off Broadwell Road.

Rugby’s planning committee rejected the application this year on February 21.

The appeal can be found on using reference 3198388.
