Ask Geelong Council to Reject Broiler Shed Proposal

The Geelong Council (a town 45 minutes west of Melbourne, Australia) is considering a permit that would allow EATMORE POULTRY to build a new 25 shed one million bird broiler 'city'.

Action Mag put in an objection and was told they were the only one to mention the cruelty! The new deadline date for objections is the first week of July when the hearing panel will make final decision.

Please write to the Geelong Council and tell them not to grant this permit. It would have a big impact and show the council that the animals ARE of importance.

Contact the countil at:

  • Mayor and Councillors
    City Of Greater Geelong
    Planning Appeals
    PO BOX 104
    Geelong VIC 3220
    Australia

  • Fax (03) 5227 0486 (The country code for Australia is 61)

  • enquiry@geelongcity.vic.gov.au

quote the following reference: Reference Number 390-00 Broiler Farm and Associated Works (EATMORE POULTRY)

The proposal is to build 25 sheds that would hold a total of one million broiler birds and would process 5 million a year on the property. Lots of neighbors are appealing because of the environment and local amenity of the area...please add your voice for the animals!
