Fracking in Kent:
On Tuesday October 11th, the application for Test Drilling for Shale Gas at Woodnesborough will be considered at by the Planning Committee of Kent County Council at Maidstone.
The licence owned by Coastal Oil and Gas Ltd who is making this application covers an extremely large area of East Kent, including Deal, Walmer, Sandwich, Eastry, surrounding villages and stretching towards Canterbur.
We believe it represents a huge threat, not only to our environment generally but that the quality of life in the whole district could be affected by potentially 24 hour noise from drilling, contamination of water supply, and loss of amenity.
More will follow on this very soon …..
