Elected councillors will write to the government requesting a review of the planning process for slurry tanks, in relation to EU regulations.
It follows a motion from Fine Gael councillor, Aoife Thornton, at the recent full meeting of Kerry County Council.
Cllr Thornton says farmers are being asked to comply with EU and environmental laws and then subjected to environmental objections; leading to delays for up to a year.
She says a streamed lined planning process and increase in on-farm slurry storage - would give greater spreading options to farmers, maximizing potential growth and reducing their carbon footprint.
The motion was seconded by Cllr Michael Foley and supported by Mayor Jim Finucance.
