West Sussex Residents Take Action Against Fracking

Steps Take To Prevent Drilling Under Land


A group of residents and landowners in West Sussex have taken legal action in an effort to prevent an energy company from undertaking exploratory drilling under their property.

Sussex Wildlife Trust and others have written to Celtique and the Department of Energy and Climate Change ahead of a council planning meeting on whether the work can proceed stating that the drillers do not have their permission to drill under their homes.

Campaigners on behalf of Keep Kirdford and Wisborough Green have argued that the process is not as safe as claimed by the industry and Government.
