Anti-fracking public meeting in Bassetlaw

Wed 19 Mar 2014, 7.30pm, The Well, Hospital Road, Retford

Frack Free Nottinghamshire public meeting about the realities of fracking. Dart Energy have a planning permit to explore and take core samples from various coal seams under land adjacent to the Danes Hill Energy Park near Sutton cum Lound, north of Retford. It is alarmingly near to wetlands and an RSPB centre. Coal Bed Methane extraction may well follow. There is a misguided feeling amongst local councillors and the Bassetlaw MP, John Mann, that it is only exploratory so there is nothing to worry about. They do not understand; no company spends the best part of £800,000 unless they intend extracting later. Work has already commenced, with vegetation cleared and the land flattened. Two security guards plus dogs are on site.
