Did you know that areas in Somerset near the Hinkley Point nuclear power plants have been licensed for onshore oil and gas drilling/exploration, including fracking?

Well, neither did we ...until recently!

How can such a significant environmental issue be unknown? No information has been forthcoming from either national or local public bodies and as a result we have not had an opportunity to engage in any consultation process as to whether we want fracking to be conducted in our county. Many decisions have already been made and we are now at the stage where licences have been issued without any proper or meaningful public consultation.

Frack Free Exmoor, Quantocks and Sedgemoor are leading a campaign against this proposal and have produced a very useful leaflet that you can read here
