PROPOSALS for a slurry lagoon in Llangollen have been unveiled.

A planning application received by Denbighshire Council is requesting permission for the development at Pengwern Hall.

Design and access documents submitted with the plans explain: "Pengwern Hall is a family run organic farming business.

"The farm extends to around 500 acres of owned and rented land.

"Land surrounding the dairy unit, which is used as the grazing block, extends to around 150 acres.

"The farm currently milks 110 cows and rear all their own replacements.

"The applicant wishes to extend his farm yard by constructing a slurry lagoon and associated ground works.

"The existing slurry store is inadequate to meet the farm storage requirements.

"The proposed slurry lagoon will allow the applicant to utilise his slurry more effectively throughout the growing season and spread his slurry stores when the ground conditions are at its most favourable."

According to the statement, all areas will be curbed so as to ensure that no dirty water escapes into the surrounding areas and especially not into the watercourse.

It adds: " Pengwern Hall is located approximately 240m to the south east of the proposed development and is a grade II listed dwelling.

"It is considered that the proposed development will have little to no impact on Pengwern Hall dwelling and will not harm the heritage values of the Listed Building or its setting.

"The site is well screened by the existing buildings and is located a significant distance from Pengwern Hall."
