Welsh Government E-Petition: Fracking

We are still very much campaigning for a UK-wide moratorium – but this FOTEC petition is something that should be supported as a precaution against the wider campaign failing to convince the ********** (choose you own term here) in the ConDem Government.


We call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Minister for Environment, Planning and Housing to produce a Ministerial Interim Minerals Planning Policy Statement as well as a new technical advice note to strengthen the precautionary principle with regard to planning applications for onshore oil and gas, including fracking.

All reasonable scientific doubt that there is any risk of adverse impacts must be eliminated, and strongest consideration must be given to the urgent need to mitigate climate change.
