Thanks to everyone who signed up to support our Not in my Banger Campaign. We objected to the local council (South Derbyshire) about the proposal for an intensive pig unit in Foston, Derbyshire, that would contain 2,500 mother pigs (sows) and around 20,000 piglets at any one time. Approximately 1000 pigs will leave the farm for slaughter each week. All the pigs will spend their entire lives indoors.
We have just heard that the planning application has been resubmitted to Derbyshire County Council.
Here at the Soil Association we will be renewing our opposition to the proposal by outlining the original concerns we had about the pig factory.
If you agree with us, then make your voice heard officially by registering your opposition to the planners on the Derbyshire County Council website. You can see some of the key points of our original evidence here.
We only have until May 13th to respond to the planning application so
please make your voice heard.
