The company wants to build another large chicken shed
The company behind one of the largest egg farms in Europe has submitted plans for another large chicken shed in the Scottish Borders.
Glenrath Farms has already been cleared to build 10 sheds - each housing about 25,000 birds - near West Linton.
Now it has put forward proposals to build another shed of similar size at East Happrew Farm in the Stobo valley.
The company says the plan would create two jobs but there have already been objections to its visual impact.
Scottish Borders Council approved the plans for 10 sheds last year despite a concerted campaign by the Blythbank Action Group.
It raised concerns about the impact on wildlife and river tributaries in the area.
However, the authority gave its approval to the scheme and the Scottish Government also agreed to let the plans proceed.
