Mendip District Council Fracking Motion

On the 30th September 2013 Mendip District Council considered a motion on fracking which was passed by a unanimous vote. This motion, whilst recognising the Government’s shale gas policy, expresses concern over the development of shale gas in Mendip and calls for detailed assessment of the environmental effects and to “adopt whatever measures available to control, and if appropriate seek to prevent the use of unconventional gas exploration and extraction within the Mendip district” echoing the recent motion by Bath and North East Somerset Council.

The Councillors of both Mendip District Council and BANES should be congratulated for proposing and passing these motions.

Come on Somerset County Council – what do you say?
