FRACK FREE RYEDALE AWAIT JUDICIAL REVIEW VERDICT

Campaigners from Ryedale brought a landmark case to court in a bid to overturn one of the first planning applications to carry out fracking in England.

Residents from Kirby Misperton in North Yorkshire joined forces with Friends of the Earth to challenge a planning decision to allow hydraulic fracturing near their homes.

The Judicial Review, brought by Jackie Cray, David Davis and Friends of the Earth was heard on 22nd and 23rd November at the Royal Court of Justice in London.

Fracking company Third Energy were granted permission by North Yorkshire County Council in May 2016 to frack just 1/4 mile from Jackie's home in the village, but aspects of the decision are now being challenged.

The judge will decide whether North Yorkshire County Council properly took into account the full impact on climate change. The claim also concerns the council's financial protection for local residents against the long-term environmental damage of the fracking.

The Judge is now considering her decision and we will post information as soon as we have it. For a summary of the two days in court, and links to news articles about the case, please click on the photo at the top of the page. More news soon!
