A chicken processing plant in Deepdale is due for further expansion.


The Gafoor Pure Halal factory in Fletcher Road wants to add a two floor building to the site.

Plans from the firm state it would be used for chilled storage space and have loading bays.

Councillors have been recommended to approve the proposals, with conditions stating the new building cannot be used for slaughtering or butchering.

Planning officers state: “The proposal would be beneficial in improving the facilities for chilled despatch and packing at existing factory premises and would not significantly affect vehicular movements or parking within the site or the amenities of neighbouring residents.


“The proposed building would have an acceptable appearance in terms of its design and materials.”

In January last year the firm was given permission to add a three storey extension.

Councillors are due to discuss the plans on Thursday 14 January from 1.30pm at the Town Hall.
