Fracking Update - February 2017

Richard reported back on a very positive public meeting and the Anti-Fracking Network meeting held in Sheffield and hosted by Friends of the Earth. The meetings involved anti-fracking groups from all parts of the region was very productive with groups expressing a wish to come together again.

There have been multiple articles in local papers in response to the 8 page INEOS “advert” for fracking, largely against fracking.

Richard attending a meeting in Doncaster this week and there is a march planned for Saturday 25 Feb starting 12 noon from Mosborough to Eckington, then to Marsh Lane. Activities are generally hotting up around Marsh Lane where INEOS plan to drill an exploratory well.

On the 4 March there is an all day event to “Power Up” to share expertise from the University of Sheffield's Planning Department.

See the diary for all up and coming events!

  1. All to consider attending fracking meetings and march if possible.
