Fracking Law Changes

Posted by on December 18th, 2015 with 0 Comments

If you live anywhere near the border of the official Cotswolds AONB you are now seriously under threat from fracking. For your livelihood, your family and your home you need to know what fracking is about and entails. In view of this development, Frack Free Cotswolds will be presenting a basic talk on what fracking is and how it could affect you. We will be presenting at various locations under threat now. These include Cirencester, Fairford, Lechlade, Malmesbury, Morton-in-the –Marsh and nearby villages such as South Cerney and those near the Cotswolds Water Park, Kemble, Quenington and the Ampneys.   Check out the map and if you live anywhere near the green border of the AONB you are now in danger of having an intensive industrialisation on your doorstep.

We have to get organised to prevent the destruction of our area and preserve the lives and livelihoods of our future generations. The battle lines have been laid down by this Government; we must not fail our future generations by ignoring the challenge. STOP SHALE NOW! Join Frack Free Cotswolds.

Please use the following maps to understand why we are at risk. Once fracking is established it is a juggernaut we cannot resist. Our only hope is to get organised early and help others and so prevent it spreading to us.

Images show typical fracking rig site, underground explosions to release trapped gas, ‘simple’ pipework, tankers on site plus huge water and frack fluid storage, juggernaut trail, pipelines across the landscape (fracking wells are only productive for months so no point in burying pipes) & collective spreading damaged surface environment.  With the new law most of these rigs will be concentrated on the borders of National Parks and AONBs rather than evenly distributed.
