Remove the licence to frack
Revoke the 2 existing fracking licences that threaten thousands of people across Scotland's Central Belt.
Why is this important?
The UK government sold two licences to frack in Scotland (Petroleum Exploration and Development Licenes - PEDLs).
Now the Scottish government has been handed control of licensing and this gives them the chance to end the threat to the health of communities across the Central Belt once and for all
PEDL 162 comes up for renewal on June 30th - we say, don't renew it.
PEDL 133 has some years to go - we say, revoke it.
And state that no further licenses will be sold.
INEOS, who own both licences, recently went to court to say the Scottish government doesn't have the power to ban fracking.
But if Holyrood has the power to licence, they also have the power NOT to licence. Support our petition and also contact your MSP and ask them to support us when the question comes up in the Scottish parliament.
