Cllr Dowden Opposes UK Fracking Plans

January 23, 2019 12:07 AM

Hampshire County Councillor, Alan Dowden has opposed ideas to allow fracking company's to take on drilling without consulting through local planning applications.

Cllr Dowden signed an open letter with 805 other local representatives to call for the propsal to be dropped.

Cllr Dowden Commented:

"These proposals represent a desperate attempt to force a failing industry onto communities. Local people understand the risks posed by fracking to their community, countryside and climate. The government must listen to local people and councillors to realise that this fracking propsal is a reckless idea."
