Here are two graphics showing the proposed 14th Round licence blocks with protected areas including those relevant to the current Habitats assessment, those that are protected under the Infrastructure Act’s ‘hydraulic fracturing safeguards’, and those protected areas that are protected from everything but fracking.
You can right-click on the graphics to download a PNG (portable network graphics) format file. There is also a link below each map to a JPEG version which is half the size but not quite so nice.
These maps are based on open information from the Government and its various agencies and are covered by the Open Government Licence. They are free to use, to print, to copy, to share – unless you are in the gas industry that is, in which case you should really go and make your own. They are designed for A4 size and if you want to print them then it is best set your printer to high quality for best results.
You can find out about the protected areas related to Habitats at the JNCC web site.
