A win win situation

A Win Win Situation!

In May 2014 Bore Free South's Eastry anti-fracking campaign was started by local residents to raise public awareness about a planned exploratory coal bed methane drill site in Woodnesborough, Kent.

After a successful local campaign in East Kent we are delighted to say the gas company Coastal Oil & Gas relinquished their planning application KCC/DO/0069/2011.

Better still .... the proposed drill site has since been developed as a solar farm. Oh the irony when renewable energy is clearly the right way forward. "A real win win situation!"

The anti-fracking community must try to repeat this success elsewhere, even if it is without any support from Government subsidies. With potentially some 159 new Petroleum Exploration and Development Licences (PEDLs) up for grabs by the gas & oil industry over the coming months, we may have won this local battle, but as far as the national anti-fracking war is concerned “we’ve only just begun”.

About Us

ABOUT US  

We started as a community group who successfully campaigned alongside other local anti-shale gas groups to eventually force Coastal Oil & Gas to relinquish planning applications in Kent.  

We passionately care about the future of our beautiful countryside and now assist other groups in the South of England with their local campaigns. If the Governments's dash for gas is allowed to go ahead unchallenged, what will remain of our countryside for our children to enjoy and for their children too? 

We simply cannot sit back and do nothing, but neither can we fight this terrible thing on our own.  So we invite you to register your support online today.
