Let Communities Decide

Hundreds of councillors and other elected representatives have signed an open letter opposing government proposals to fast-track fracking.

Over 850 councillors and other elected representatives have signed an open letter opposing government proposals to allow fracking companies to undertake exploratory drilling without local planning applications.

Dear James Brokenshire MP (CC Greg Clark MP, Kit Malthouse MP, Claire Perry MP),

The UK government has proposed changes to planning rules that would allow exploratory drilling for shale gas to be considered “permitted development”, removing the need for fracking companies to apply for planning permission.

The current planning framework for shale gas provides an important regulatory process for the industry, offering necessary checks and balances by local authorities who best understand the circumstances in their areas. Crucially, it also allows communities directly affected a say in how, and whether, shale gas exploration proceeds in their neighbourhoods.

We believe that applying permitted development to exploratory shale gas drilling represents a distortion of its intention and is a misuse of the planning system. Permitted Development was originally intended to be used to speed up planning decisions on small developments – like garden sheds or erecting a fence – not drilling for shale gas.

As elected representatives of our communities, we the undersigned call for the withdrawal of this proposal, and respect for the right of communities to make decisions on shale gas activities in their areas through the local planning system.

Yours Sincerely,

  1. Alex Dale, Chairman of North Derbyshire Conservative Association, Derbyshire County Council
  2. Andy Sorton, Chair, Planning and Highways Regulation Committee, Stockport MBC (Labour)
  3. David Rudd, Planning Committee Member, East Riding of Yorkshire Council (Conservative)
