Fiskerton rabbit farm plans are withdrawn

The farmer behind plans to build a barn for breeding rabbits in a Nottinghamshire village has withdrawn his application.

T&S Nurseries had submitted plans to Newark and Sherwood District Council to keep up to 1,100 rabbits at a site in Fiskerton.

Villagers had voiced concerns over traffic and the environmental impact.

Council planning officials were due to meet on 18 May to decide on the proposal.
