Business and Tourism

This page will summarise the main implications for tourism and the local economy in Ryedale, IF fracking went ahead, based on the experiences in other parts of the UK and the rest of the world. For example:

  • the blight on the landscape, of 4-8 wells per square mile
  • large numbers of lorry movements, affecting traffic and road traffic accidents
  • the air and water quality, affecting health and quality of life
  • the falling rents and property values
  • the affect on quality of life and visitor numbers
