Where -Preston Minster, Church Street, PR1 3BT Preston, Lancashire                 Show Map

When – 4 February – 19:00–21:00Please join us at a public meeting to find out more about fracking, the risks, and how to stop it being forced on communities in Lancashire.

In June, Lancashire won an amazing victory, when LCC Planning Committee refused 2 major planning applications made by, Cuadrilla, the shale gas company who caused 2 earthquakes in Lancashire in 2011..

But now this victory is at risk. Cuadrilla has ‘appealed’ against Lancashire’s decision to reject fracking.

This means a public hearing, starting February 9th, will hear evidence on whether Lancashire’s decision should be upheld or overturned by politicians in Westminster.

Come to this public meeting to find out more about how to keep Lancashire frack free.

Lancashire has rejected fracking already – and now we need to stop Westminster’s interference in our local democracy.


Asad Rehman, Friends of the Earth.
Steven Holgate, County Councillor in Lancashire.
Residents of Preston New Road and Roseacre, the two areas threatened with fracking.
