“Currently these farms do not house chickens or provide housing for staff. There are dormant chicken houses and mostly vacant residential houses on the farms,” explained Kets.

He highlighted the fact that many of the farms were suitable for conversion to storage facilities, while several could also be rezoned for commercial/residential development due to their favourable locations. He added that two of the farms had already been zoned for light industrial use.
