FRACKING AND LOCAL COMMUNITIES
EDM #1598
Tabled 10 September 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House notes the huge impact that fracking has on local communities; further notes the lack of consultation undertaken with local residents when national fracking decisions are made; rejects the Government 's National Planning Policy Framework which neglects the voices of local people who completely oppose it; and calls on the Government to give local residents the power and influence in planning in their communities and not allow fracking companies to have a free reign to override residents’ very real concerns.
