Planning officers have recommended that North Yorkshire County Council approve plans to turn Ryedale into a fracking site. Gas company Third Energy have submitted plans to begin hydraulic fracturing in the area. Friends of the Earth campaigners are disappointed with the news.
Simon Bowens, Yorkshire Campaigner at Friends of the Earth, said: “While it is disappointing that planning officers have dismissed the serious risks of fracking in Ryedale, Third Energy shouldn’t be popping champagne corks yet.
“North Yorkshire Councillors have been presented with clear evidence that Third Energy’s application could harm local wildlife, local business, people’s health and the environment – including from Ryedale District Council, Flamingo Land and the Wildlife Trust.
“The council must now listen to the thousands of residents who have objected to fracking, and the strong evidence put before them, and reject Third Energy’s proposal to frack.”
