Council endorses backyard chicken pilot project in London.

Thursday 14 December 2017

The City of London is revisiting the issue of backyard chickens, seven years after voting against a push to allow people to have laying hens in their backyard. At Monday’s planning and environment committee meeting, councilors approved the Urban Agriculture Strategy, which includes a backyard chicken pilot project, in a unanimous vote. Councillor Stephen Turner, however, was recused from the vote because of his work with the Middlesex London Health Unit. The strategy also includes urban farms, support for farmers’ markets, community kitchens, community composting and school gardens. A final vote on the strategy will be held at the next full council meeting. Animal Welfare Advisory Committee confirmed it is against the pilot project, citing concerns about the risk to chickens in extreme weather conditions, safe handling and housing of chickens, disposal of unwanted hens, the risk of predators to hens and public health.
