To: Isle of Wight Council

No new oil drilling on the Isle of Wight

Reason for signing

  • Imagine low oil. Now imagine low drinking water.Unlikely?The risk is still there.Machinery 'could' fail at some point.Our fresh water 'could' be contaminated.Decision makers, and investors must be able to live with the consequences; just as my children must.Soon, only the investors will need to decide.Government is proposing to allow oil drilling/fracking to come under 'permitted development'.This development would bypass elected councils.Google 'ffiow'.
