Twenty-six submissions have been made to the Wexford County Council Planning Authorities since the owner of a piggery in Glynn made a submission for retention of planning in November.

In August 2014, a warning letter was served by the council to Premier Pigs Ltd following complaints that the owner had not built the piggery in accordance with planning conditions. According to Communications Officer with Wexford County Council David Minogue, an enforcement notice was issued on June 26, 2015. On November 16, a submission of retention of planning was made by the piggery's owners proposing for the retention of two feed silos instead of the three that were originally proposed.

Since then, 26 submissions have been made, both in favour and against the retention. The decision due date on the planning application for retention is today (January 19).
