The owners of a puppy breeding facility in Wantabadgery will have to wait at least another month before a decision is made on their proposed site extensions.
During last month's meeting, Junee Shire Councillors failed to make a decision on the application, which would see a new kennel built at the McDonald's Lane facility.
Planning consultant Gary Salvestra, a spokesman for Willow Falling Border Collies, fronted Junee Shire Council on Tuesday night to urge a swift decision.
"We're aware that council has made a merits assessment, obviously that was presented at the last council meeting and they made a recommendation to approve the application subject to conditions," Mr Salvestra told council.
Conditions were placed on the application due to a previous cease operation notice issued to the business in December of last year.
At that time, the business was known as 'Taylea Border Collies' and was found to be operating as an unapproved commercial breeding facility.
Then there were 13 breeding females and four adult male dogs on the land, and it is understood these animals remain on site.
But Mr Salvestra urged council to disregard the previous dealing when considering the renewed application.
"[In July] council made a resolution not to deal with the application, however, we're not of any understanding that there were any reasons given to make any decisions on the application," he said.
"What we are of the understanding is that that [decision] is being driven by an opinion that the applicants would fail to undertake or commit to the required works in accordance with the approval.
"My understanding is that that opinion isn't sufficient reason to justify a refusal of the application. Any past action on the site really is not relevant to determine the [development approval]."
July's council meeting was attended by long-term resident Wayne Manning, who presented his concerns over the "continual barking heard 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 said.
Councillors formulated three main concerns over the property, including its proximity to the Wantabadgery township, potential noise pollution and its proposed use being "not consistent with the public interest".
While remaining silent on his personal views towards the facility, mayor Neil Smith acknowledged the application's merit.
"Given I work in the planning sector, I think it's a good report. The management plan and the additional documentation are pretty tight."
Councillors resolved to return a decision in September, after re-considering the application as it appeared in July.
