KCC Planning Committee on Fracking 6th Dec

We finally have a date for the hearing of the application to drill a test bore hole at Woodnesborough. It will be heard at Sessions House, County Hall Maidstone on Tuesday 6th December, starting at 10 am.  
It would be great to have as much support as possible at what will be the beginning of what may be a long process in the possible exploitation of Shale Gas by means of fracking in our district, and a show of strength at this point would help to persuade the members of the Planning Committee that is not a good idea to open the way to an industrial procedure that could contaminate our water,degrade our environment, cause long term health problems, and distract us from the need to develop renewable energy and preserve our lovely countryside to grow our food on.
If you are free to come with us on Tuesday, and need a lift, or can offer one please email us at
We will be leafleting again  in Deal outside M&S on Saturday morning from 10.15 am ,please join us if you can!
The planning committee report can be found here
