Do not use public money for an expansion of Banaras Halal Meats Slaughterhouse in Boosbeck.

This petition had 1,099 supporters

Redcar council wants to give £100,000 of public money to this family owned business and source another £400,000 in grants for development.

The slaughterhouse is situated on Boosbeck village High Street adjacent to the children’s park and overlooked by at least 60 family homes, some just 20 feet away.

The Council has received hundreds of complaints about the noise, smell and pollution from residents in our small village. Children walking past the site on their way to the primary school witness the bloody carcasses and body parts in skips outside. Families have been driven out of their homes by the smell of rotting guts. Neighbours can't sleep at night due to deliveries of bleating sheep and crying lambs.

Public money should not be used to develop this business for its private owners. Planning permission should be discontinued to cease the torture and suffering this business creates.
