A PARISH council meeting was due to be held last night

for villagers in Great Witchingham and Lenwade to find out more about plans for a former rendering plant building near their

homes.

Great Witchingham Parish Council called the meeting over Clay Hall Farm, recently bought by millionaire businessman Graham Dacre for his wife Julie.

It has caused massive controversy in the villages for the past two years as they fought against a rendering plant built there by poultry giant Banham Compost, without full planning permission.

Mr and Mrs Dacre, who live in nearby Attlebridge, have vowed there will not be a rendering plant there again and their plans were to be put before the meeting, which will be reported on in next week's Times.
