The RTPI President Dr. Wei Yang recently visited AC Goatham & Son to see the UK’s largest apple and pear growing, cold storage, and packing operation, which is located at Flanders Farm, Hoo.
Dr. Wei Yang “My recent visit to A.C. Goatham and Son Ltd was very special. It’s amazing to learn how scientifically based the fruit growing industry is and how vital proactive rural planning is to their sustainable business development. Rural planning plays a significant role in our net-zero, natural capital gain, and food security agenda. The RTPI is going to carry out a Rural Planning Research New cold store under construction at Swanton farm.”
