Public meeting over fracking concerns in Barnsley

Tuesday October 27 2015

A PUBLIC meeting has been called by two local groups concerned about the possibility of fracking in Barnsley.

In August new licences were announced for Shale Gas exploration, including land to the east of Barnsley, stretching from Darfield to Mexborough.

Frack Free South Yorkshire and Barnsley Green Party are to co-host the meeting at the YMCA in Barnsley from 7.30pm on Thursday, November 12.

A Barnsley Green Party spokesperson said: "There are numerous concerns over the damage that this industry can cause. Those concerns are multiplied when you consider the history of mining and subsidence around Barnsley.

“We urge anyone who wants to find out more about what fracking in the Barnsley area could mean to attend this meeting and make their own minds up.”

If you want to know the risks associated with fracking as told by the people who have already been fracked please watch "Voices From The Gasfields" on youtube. If you can make the meeting there will be a question and answer session whereby you can voice your concerns regarding this industry and its effect on your environment and health.
