There was an interesting letter in the Gazette and Herald about the seismic survey, and the lack of transparency in the information that is being given to farmers and landowners about its ultimate purpose.
There are also concerns that TESLA have overstepped the boundaries of the survey.
The letter goes on to say “The government will try to persuade local authorities into granting planning permission for fracking. They will tell us we need the income. However, the long-term destruction of our environment is too high a price to pay – and there are alternatives.”
