A network of anti-fracking groups has organised three public meetings to raise awareness about shale gas plans by Aurora Energy Resources near Formby.
The Environment Agency announced this afternoon that Cuadrilla had surrendered its environmental permit for the proposed shale gas site at Roseacre Wood, near Blackpool.
Conservative councillors in Lancashire have been accused of using a “wrecking amendment” for a second time to block support for their government’s policy on the rules on seismic activity induced by fracking.
Details of plans to frack shale gas wells near Formby in Lancashire were published online today.
There are no circumstances in which Lancashire County Council could have a “meaningful debate” about the fracking industry, its Conservative leader has told DrillOrDrop.
An investigation among people living near Cuadrilla’s Lancashire shale gas site has revealed that most believed fracking was bad for health, wildlife and the wider environment.
To shouts of “disgraceful” and “ridiculous”, Lancashire County Council voted to adjourn a debate on the regulation of earth tremors caused by fracking.
