Say no to fracking company IGas & their latest application in Cheshire

Say no to fracking company IGas & their latest application in Cheshire

Reject this application for an extended flow test which includes using thousands of tonnes of acid and gas flaring

Why is this important?

-noise associated with the operation
-dust
-air quality
-lighting
-visual intrusion into the local setting and the wider landscape caused by the placement of any building or structure within the application site area
-landscape character
-archaeological and heritage features
-traffic
-risk of contamination to land
-soil resources
-flood risk
-land stability/subsidence
-internationally, nationally or locally designated wildlife sites, protected habitats and species, and ecological networks
-nationally protected geological and geomorphologic sites and features
-site restoration and aftercare
-health impacts both physical and mental (due to lack of knowledge about this process and ensuing stress)

Reasons for signing

  • The Environment Agency is not sufficiently resourced to be able to monitor fracking activity.
  • I signed because I see no reason to establish a completely new fossil fuel industry here in the UK when we are trying to move towards a zero carbon economy
  • Procedures use toxic pollutants , people, land, water, wildlife adversely affected and land left black , barren and useless. Do we want to leave this legacy for future generations?????
