IGas are looking to frack in the very north of the county in Misson Springs. To do so they must carry out groundwater monitoring for 1 year. At the end of July, IGas submitted a planning application to Notts County Council for this work.

First they were delayed because they took their time publicising the application to the local media. Over 300 comments were submitted to the county council, including a strong objection  from the Wildlife Trust and CPRE.

The meeting to decide this application was set as Tuesday 20th October and Frack Free Notts prepared demonstrations.

However, they’ve been delayed again, because they’ve had to supply more documentation to the county council. This means that the decision meeting has now been postponed, causing more time delays and more money spent (Total, the French company funding this must not be at all happy!)

Because of the new documentation, the planning application is now live again allowing for comments & objections. If you did not object last time then now is the time – the deadline is the 5th October. Details on how to object can be found on our website page.

    Fracking should just not be allowed at all anywhere in the UK or the world. Think about what your doing to the world, using up all its resources your killing it and that means your killing us! Stop now and find another way.

    I support the objections to applications to begin exploratory tests to cracking as outlined above.

    Keep fossil fuels in the ground and encouraae and enable use of renewable fuels. Burning of gas leads to atmospheric over-heating and its production endangers the local population from ground pollution.
