Thousands have rejected the possible construction of five pig houses, designed to house 13,000 pigs.

Approximately 14,000 people have signed a total of five petitions to stop the go-ahead of the construction of five pig houses designed to house 13,000 pigs.

As reported by BCC, the mention of a large-scaled pig farm on the outskirts of Limavady Northern Ireland has caused mixed reactions.

In addition to the online petition, further 3,000 letters those objecting, have comes through the doors of Glens Council and Causeway Coast.

In their thousands many have rejected and explained their reasoning, stemming from environmental and health concerns, due to the production and spreading of excess slurry.

Over 20,000 tonnes would be expected to be produced and spread on 1,300 acres.

Two letters of support have also followed.

The initiative has been backed by PCM Group, which negotiates on behalf of thirty-two farmers.

With one meeting already successfully hosted, the second is set to occur on 23rd August 2017 next.
