A family farm hopes to build a large potato store in a bid to boost business and reduce delivery vehicles from rural roads.

Nick Harrold, from E F Harrold Ltd in Oulton, near Aylsham, has applied to Broadland District Council for full planning permission for a 2,200 tonne agricultural box potato store.

If approved, the 36.6 metre by 8 metre steel building would be on Street Farm, off The Street, and match surrounding agricultural buildings.

The store would include an open loading canopy, office and machinery store.

A design and access statement read: “The business has limited potato storage of its own...Moving all of potatoes directly off the farm at harvest time is a logistical problem, a very inefficient use of labour, due to the sporadic nature of harvest. And with its intensive nature, an intensive use of the local road network.”
