A pet crematorium at Guilsborough is at the centre of a High Court planning and environmental battle. Mr Justice Turner has given leave for a challenge to be mounted against Daventry District Council's decision to allow Timeright Ltd, operator of the crematorium, to expand its activities on the site to include disposal of medical and chemical waste from other veterinary practices. Thornby Farms claims that council consent for expansion of the operation was unlawful under both European and UK law and breached the Environmental Protection Act 1990. It says that its farmland could
be polluted by emissions from the site's incinerators. Though originally used as a pet crematorium, Thornby says the operation has now expanded to include storage and treatment of animal waste and carcasses and disposal of photographic waste.
