Take a precautionary approach to proposals which may adversely affect the integrity of the essential aquifer.

Reject proposals that may result in an unacceptable adverse impact on the environment, local communities and landscape

Seek clarity on who bears the future cost of the legacy liability relating to abandoned or disused facilities.

Require the full disclosure to the appropriate authority of any materials that any developer proposes to inject into or pass through the aquifer either as part of the exploration or exploitation of natural gas or oil reserves.””
