• Stop Fracking in Bolton
    Horizontal hydraulic fracturing, ‘fracking’, is a way of extracting oil and/or gas. Water, sand and toxic chemicals are injected at high pressure into underground rocks to shatter them. This releases the gas/oil which can be collected. But investing in carbon-intensive fossil fuels is a distraction from the need to decarbonise our electricity supply. And it's hazardous. Studies show that fracking pollutes water supplies (with arsenic and lead), causes earthquakes, and spoils local communities. And there are nightmare stories coming form the States. Like in the town of Dimock, PA, residents have reported their water turning so brown that it stains crockery. Their water was later found to contain methane, and a host of toxic chemicals. But it gets worse. "My son had sores up and down his legs from the water." " My daughter... would have to get out the of the shower and lay on the floor." Those are the words from Greg Saunter, a local resident, whose water supply was shut off for his own good. He cannot shower in his own home. Or drink water out of his taps. Fracking has ruined his life. It cannot happen here. We call on the council to preserve the quality of life of its residents, and reject all planning applications for fracking.

  • Save Bath's Public Toilets
    Many people in Bath rely on Public Toilets. Around 1 in 5 people suffer with a variety of urinary or bowel problems and need convenient, accessible loos. In particular older people, pregnant women and those with young children will be hard hit by the closures. Losing the loos will lead some people to stay at home rather than risk being caught short. A lack of public toilets will also affect local businesses and traders as well as increasing the risk of people urinating on the street, a public health hazard. Nearly 1000 people already signed paper petitions to preserve this vital facility yet incredibly there has been no public consultation on these plans. The relatively small amount of money saved in the short term will be cancelled out by longer term effects and untold daily misery for vulnerable people and all those who need to ‘go’.
