The CPRW along with other governmental organisations and groups such as; Radnorshire Wildlife Trust, Plantlife, the Woodland Trust, Countryside Restoration Trust, Campaign for the Protection of Welsh Fisheries, the Angling Trust/Fish Legal are seriously concerned about the rapid expansion and over development of IPUs across Powys.
IPUs (intensive poultry units) are giant scale industrial size steel sheds, typically around 100 metres long by 20 metres wide, with accompanying hard standing, silos and supporting infrastructure, and because of this are usually hard to blend into the countryside. The environment agency categorises intensive livestock units as industrial installations and this includes IPUs.
