An application to extend a dog breeding facility in Wantabadgery has failed following discussions in Junee Shire Council this week.
The proposal tabled with the council outlined plans for the McDonalds Lane property's continued use as a boarding and training facility, as well as the establishment of a new kennel building.
Up until December last year, the business had been operating as an unapproved commercial dog breeding facility under the name of 'Taylea Border Collies'.
But Junee council issued a cease operation notice after the refusal of a previous development application.
At that time, the site lay host to 13 breeding females and four adult male dogs, and it is understood these animals remain on site.
Following initial assessments, the owners submitted an amended development application with new conditions.
During Tuesday night's meeting, councillors rejected the motion to approve the latest conditions but remained undecided on the overall development application.
Councillors expressed concerns over noise mitigation in proximity to the village centre.
In a statement to The Junee Southern Cross, general manager James Davis indicated future discussions would take place between stakeholders and the applicant.
Wayne Manning's family have lived on the neighbouring plot for the past four generations. On Tuesday night, Mr Manning fronted council to air his concerns over the property, noting the "continual barking, day and night".
"There are old people out there, there are interstate truck drivers out there, and we all need our sleep. We all need to live [as] we did two years ago and we're not getting that now," Mr Manning told the council.
