Update on areas threatened with Fracking in the UK (amended)

Based on the PEDL licence regions the following areas are likely to be on the radar of the Frackers. Those in bold italics have some degree of organised opposition set up that we are aware of to date. If any one hears of any fracking related developments in any area, please let us know by email: fracking@chyba.go-plus.netAll opposition groups are invited to contact me on the above email address for information on a national anti-fracking coalition that is set to be launched in March 2012.

    We were around Pulborough in summer 2010 and there was seismic going on on lots of b roads .We were very concerned for England after the information coming out in the states and here in Canada .It seems there is nothing these people wont do for another buck .England is too small and populated .
