Nottinghamshire County Councillors have already approved exploratory drilling for shale gas, which could lead to fracking wells in the Nottinghamshire countryside. And they may approve a second application for a site near Retford at a hearing on Tuesday 21st March.

With these decisions, not only does the county council ride roughshod over the UK’s climate change obligations, but this irrational dash for fossil fuels with ever more extreme methods endangers and disrupts our local communities and wildlife.
We won’t bow to the fracking lobby’s dangerous agenda.
Only Green Party county council election candidates pledge to oppose any planning applications to begin extreme fossil fuel extraction processes such as fracking and shale gas, coal-bed methane, and underground coal gasification.
