A public inquiry into plans to build a dairy that could house 1,000 cows is due to get underway in Powys. The proposed extension at Lower Leighton Farm near Welshpool would also include a three storey parlour, three livestock cubicle buildings, two slurry stores and a water storage tower.
Last year the Welsh Government decided to call in the application following Powys County Council's decision to refuse planning permission. The plans have been controversially in the area with some local people organising protests against the project.
