Ask your council leaders to STOP fast-tracked fracking

Recent government proposals to fast-track fracking are getting closer to reality.

The government wants to make it possible to drill test wells for non-hydraulic fracking without needing to complete planning applications, using planning tools intended to approve low-impact developments like conservatories – not fracking.

Fracking poses serious risks to our countryside, and unless these risks can be fully mitigated there should be more - not less - scrutiny.

And they’re proposing that fracking decisions can be forced through from national government – disregarding community opposition and overstepping local councils’ autonomy.

But, in recent weeks we have seen rising, wide scale opposition to the proposals, putting the government on the back foot and under pressure. MPs from all political parties are voicing their opposition to the plans, highlighting their undemocratic nature,and many local councils have done the same.

Our message is clearly getting through and our voices are being heard, so let’s keep on pushing until the government drops fast-tracked fracking.

The proposals are being consulted on right now. Will you help us make sure local councils know the impact of these proposals and urge them to raise concerns with your MP?

Write to your Council Leader

Below you will find the letter we have prepared about the concerns that come with fast-tracked fracking. Depending on where you live, your letter will be sent to your County Council Leader and/or your District/Unitary Council Leader. If you have the time to personalise it, it will be even more effective. Please take a few moments to stand up for the countryside and give us a strong voice. 

Your details, your Council Leader's name, and CPRE's briefing on the fracking proposals will be added to the letter when it is sent.
