Plans to build a slurry lagoon in Longtown are causing a stink amongst residents there.
A local dairy farm says it needs the to build the lagoon to future proof its business which employs 15 people.
An area of land the size of three football pitches is being proposed to hold over two million gallons of slurry.
Chief concerns from the residents are the smell of the slurry, questions over its transportation and the danger to children in the area.
Council planning officers have recommended approval of the proposal but local residents have handed in a protest petition with more than 200 signatures.
"The Environment Agency report does not consider aerial transmissions of pathogens and odour. Why not? "
