Don’t let the government fast-track fracking: PETITION

Recent proposals by the government would make it as easy to get permission for an exploratory fracking well as for a conservatory.

If they go ahead, local decision-makers and communities would be stripped of the ability to block fracking in their areas – with decisions forced over their heads from a national level.

There are strong public reservations about the huge risks fracking poses to our countryside – but the government is looking to fast-track the process anyway.

Will you join tens of thousands of others in calling for the government to drop these proposals?

Fracking risks industrialising our countryside and poses significant harm to our climate and environment.

Paving the way for it – without guaranteeing that these threats will not materialise – is too great a risk to even contemplate.

Digging up countryside

Communities have been pushing back against fracking for years because of these concerns – blocking it at every turn.

Decisions should not be taken out of communities’ hands – and the planning system should not be twisted to suit the government’s pro-fracking agenda.

We must see that these proposals are dropped. Will you help?
