The Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund wins fight to stop plans for breeding unit

The RWFA is thrilled after plans to build a rabbit breeding unit in Lincolnshire have been rejected – we all are 🙂

The RWFA spent hundreds of pounds seeking expert advice to put together a watertight case against the application.

An on-line petition opposing the plans gained 31,237 UK signatures and 84,610 signatures overall.

The planning application was submitted to South Holland District Council by Glen Bruce, who currently runs a pet breeding business with his brother in Crowland area.

A previous application had already been rejected and the second application had been re-written to address the grounds for refusal.

The RWFA said ” This was an issue that stirred the welfare community, with rescues, organisations and individuals voicing their disapproval”
