Councillors told ‘be brave’ ahead of Cuadrilla fracking decision

Residents living near a proposed fracking site have urged councillors to “be brave” and refuse to give it the go-ahead. Energy firm Cuadrilla wants to develop two new sites between Preston and Blackpool to explore for shale gas by drilling, fracking and testing the flow of gas. A report from Lancashire County Council planning officials recommended that one of the sites - at Preston New Road near Little Plumpton - be passed subject to a number of conditions being met such as hours of working, control of noise and highway matters.

Campaign warns over Cuadrilla fracking snub

Rejecting plans for test fracking in Lancashire would send a message that the county was not open for business and investment, a campaign group has warned. Members of the North West Energy Task Force said it would be a missed opportunity to create jobs and “significantly” boost the local economy. The coalition, which includes local businesses, academics, farmers and students, spoke out on the eve of the beginning of the decision-making process on proposals by shale company Cuadrilla for two sites between Preston and Blackpool.
