Don't relax fracking rules
Keep the current traffic light regulation for fracking activity.
Why is this important?
The current regulation for seismic activity, which is a traffic light monitoring system for fracking, was agreed with the industry who wanted to be seen as safe and responsible.
Now as there are increased earthquakes which cause a pause in operational activity, the industry is asking for the regulation to be relaxed.
Locals are concerned that increased earthquakes are causing damage. Therefore the current traffic light system needs to be retained . Please ask the energy minister to ensure the current regulations will be upheld.
