REAF Collaborate on Frack Free Food Campaign

Resident groups and environmental organisations from across Lancashire have joined together to plan opposition to the fracking industry in the county.lfffa_launch_preston_small.jpg

A dozen groups met in Preston city centre to share information on forthcoming applications by Cuadrilla for multi-well frack sites in the Fylde, and a current application to extend their operations at the Banks site in West Lancashire. The Banks site, where Cuadrilla have previously broken planning conditions designed to protect wintering birds, is on the edge the wildlife-rich Ribble Estuary and in an important farming area.

The groups also launched the Lancashire Frack Free Alliance which aims to unite farmers, chefs, restaurants and consumers to protect the local food economy from a large-scale fracking industry.

The groups in attendance were Central Lancashire Friends of the Earth, Defend Lytham, Frack Free Fylde, Garstang Against Fracking, Lancaster Against Fracking, Longridge Against Fracking, Preston Greenpeace, Residents Action on Fylde Fracking, Ribble Estuary Against Fracking, Roseacre Awareness Group, Singleton Against a Fracked Environment, Southport Friends of the Earth
