Last week the council became aware of a number of turkeys being housed at the site and on Monday, the authority's enforcement team issued a Temporary Stop Notice which requires the use of the poultry house to cease immediately.
Portfolio holder with responsibility for enforcement, Councillor Craig Leyland, said: "It is unacceptable that the units have been brought into use and animals have been moved in before the applicant had ensured that all of the conditions attached to the planning permission had been met and fully carried out on site.
"The council will take firm action against such breaches of planning permission. It is now up to the applicant to ensure that all conditions are met before the site becomes operational."
