The government has been urged to delay a final decision on fracking near Blackpool because of local concerns about a lack of information on plans to deal with an emergency.
The Green Party Co-leader, Jonathan Bartley, said today he would be raising community concerns with Cuadrilla about what would happen in an emergency at the company’s fracking site.
An opponent of fracking has won an eight-month campaign to force Lancashire’s Fire and Rescue Service to release information about emergency planning at Cuadrilla’s shale gas operation.
The decision on the transport plan for Third Energy’s fracking site at Kirby Misperton looks likely to be delayed for at least a week because of concerns about the routing of delivery lorries.
