Planning to reconsider application for farm shed

ONE of Jersey’s youngest farmers is a step closer to expanding his business after a Planning panel agreed to reconsider his application to build a large shed.
Laurent Coenen was refused permission to build on his land in St Lawrence earlier this year, but insisted that he needed the building to house sheep and farm machinery.
The shed would also be used for packing, storing and grading eggs, and keeping animal feed.
After hearing from Mr Coenen and Rob Williams, of architects JSL Associates, the panel supported the young farmer’s bid to have his request reconsidered. Mr Coenen’s application for the building will be looked at again in the New Year.
