AN APPLICATION to retain a pigeon loft attached to a house in Newport which was built larger than previously permitted will be decided by council members next week.
Planning permission was granted in 2005 for the loft at the house in Shaw Grove. But in 2014 it was altered and enlarged without permission to become a larger L-shape.
An application to be allowed to retain the larger loft has now been lodged and will be discussed by Newport City Council on Wednesday, July 5.
One objection has been received against the proposal, calling the plans “most inconsiderate and saying “I am now surrounded by pigeons and whatever window I look out of all I see is pigeon lofts and pigeons”.
A council report said the loft houses about 60 pigeons at a time, which are released from 7am.
Wednesday’s meeting is open to the public and will begin at 10am.
