keepcalmandsaveryedaleDespite overwhelming opposition from all sectors of the community, reams of damning evidence of the dangers of fracking, detailed submissions of planning law failures and 4,375 objections against 36 letters in favour, the NYCC still voted to approve Third Energy’s application to frack at KM8 on 23rd May.

We took the decision to the High Court for a Judicial Review, but unfortunately the judge did not find in our favour. We are also fighting the looming threat of fracking all across North Yorkshire, as other energy companies gear up to put in more planning applications.

Despite the setback in the High Court, our fight will continue, and we are urgently raising money to fight back against Third Energy and the other companies who are planning to frack in Yorkshire. WILL YOU HELP US?

Frack Free Ryedale relies on donations from supporters and members, so please donate to our KM8 Fighting Fund to help us fight fracking.
