Cuadrilla have applied to allow the addition of further chemicals, more silica and an incinerator to burn waste. Not only would this further industrialise the rural landscape and cause associated pollution, but it would also make a mockery of the original planning application, consultation and subsequent public inquiry. This is full scale hydraulic fracturing by parts – adding smaller but significant changes to the permit that will culminate in a large scale operation. This is just one fracking pad. Cuadrilla NEED hundreds of pads in the area to make it a viable business model”.
The deadline for the consultation is March 20th and we need as many people as possible to submit comments. A link to the Cuadrilla consultation is included here.
