Who We Are

We are a close knit community of people in Burghwallis and the surrounding villages including Carcroft, Skellow, Sutton and Owston who oppose the application for an Industrial Intensive Pig Unit of 1000 pigs being built on idyllic Green Belt land next to Squirrel Wood. The proposed Pig Unit will cause material damage to the quality of life for those affected in the form of the appalling noise and smell, the light pollution and the bio-security risk for our ground and watercourses.

We are campaigning and objecting to the proposal which will be sited on the edge of our village, just 100 meters away from Squirrel Wood Scout Camp; an amenity used and enjoyed by hundreds of scouts and other community groups from all over the area. This is the ONLY SCOUT CAMP DONCASTER HAS to provide outdoor experiences for the children of South Yorkshire and beyond. It is now under SERIOUS THREAT.

We believe planning application will be rejected due to the large number of objections, however in the event of the application being granted we need financial support towards instructing a Judicial Review which will cost approximately £40,000.

Please consider the consequences of the application succeeding for yourself and generations to come and pledge your financial support.
