This page will summarise the main implications for the people of Ryedale, IF fracking went ahead, based on the experiences in other parts of the UK and the rest of the world.

For example:

  • health, health of children and unborn babies
  • earthquake damage to houses, which is uninsurable
  • large numbers of lorry movements, affecting quality of life, noise, air, and road traffic accidents. (Local people wept as convoys of over 50 lorries queued all day to get to the fracking site in XXXX)
  • falling house prices
  • poisoned drinking water
