Penrith campaign group releases "damage" video
KEEP Penrith Special, the campaign group set up to oppose Eden Council's Penrith masterplan, which would involve building thousands of new homes above the town and doubling its population, has launched a video which it says shows the damage the development would cause to the Eden Valley.
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."
