This English Village Might Soon Be Overrun With a Megafarm

In a troubling move, the food producer Cranswick is proposing an aggressive expansion of its operations in Norfolk, England, aiming to build one of the UK's largest industrial farms. The plan includes adding millions of chickens and tens of thousands of pigs on a site formerly known for its serene landscapes and vibrant wildlife. Local residents are understandably deeply concerned about the increased traffic, pollution, and the inhumane treatment of animals that such a massive scale of operations would entail. It's simple: We cannot let this project continue.

Sign the petition to urge West Norfolk Council to reject this mega-farm proposal and protect our community and natural environment!

This massive farm expansion threatens to disrupt the local ecosystem, diminish residents' quality of life, and could potentially create a hotspot for diseases due to the high concentration of animals. Industrial-scale farming practices like this one not only undermine animal welfare but also pose significant risks to public health and our environment.

Also, the impact on local infrastructure and the natural beauty that attracts tourists to Norfolk could be devastating. With increased traffic and foul odors emanating from animal waste, the character of this beloved village is at risk. 

Sign this petition to demand that West Norfolk Council prioritize the welfare of our communities, the protection of wildlife, and the integrity of our environment over the interests of big business.
