Planning Objections

Intensive Classified Farms

Note these are based on the Environment Agency definition which is both narrow and omits cattle, sheep, goats and other species- see Aims page for our broader definition of factory farming

Please help us by objecting to these planning applications:

*** IMPORTANT *** Please, please put at least ONE OR TWO LINES at the start of each letter as to why you are personally motivated to object. This is important to ensure it is counted as an objection (a petition may only count as 1, regardless of how many signatures are on it).

Feel free to tailor the rest of the letter as well if you wish to. Individualised letters are more likely to make more of a difference. The template aims to give you some stats / ideas to choose from.

You do need to include your NAME on the letters and leave in that you OBJECT.

Thank you for adding your voice.
