As reported in Planning Resources 24th June 2019

The government has removed a paragraph from the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) intended to support the extraction of "unconventional hydrocarbons" following a High Court ruling earlier this year which found that a public consultation on the policy was flawed.

The Yorkshire Sacrifice Zone?

The future of our countryside doesn't depend on fracking - it depends on people


A recent "Op-Ed" in the Yorkshire Post has provoked quite a response! (See below for details)

We're campaigning to stop  Fast-Tracked Fracking - it's all all out assault of local democracy.

The Government has been driving fracking forward in the face of massive local and public opposition based on well reported environmental and health risks

If their new proposals are successful, they'll be able to force exploratory drilling and full scale fracking against the will of local communities and the wider public.  

The Government is showing a blatant disregard for local democracy and the concerns of general public and this must be stopped.
