Keep Penrith Special, the campaign group set up to oppose the Penrith Masterplan of Eden District Council, which would involve building three new villages above Penrith and doubling its population, has launched a video which shows the damage the Masterplan would cause to the beautiful Eden Valley.
The campaign spokesman Adrian Hill said: “We filmed this drone video to show everyone exactly what is proposed.
“We have already collected nearly 2,000 digital signatures in the area from local people who are horrified about what is being planned.
“We have hundreds more on paper. We now welcome the engagement of everyone who loves this beautiful part of Northern England as well as our local friends in our campaign. Please look at our video and join our campaign.”
Keep Penrith Special launched an online petition on 10th September against EDC’s Penrith Masterplan. Links to the petition and video can be found at www.keeppenrithspecial.org.
