Fracking

  • The Parish Council, which is made up of village residents, holds the conservation of the environment of the Parish to be of vital importance and would never support any project that had the potential to damage this. We are totally opposed to any fracking activity in our vicinity. As yet, no fracking application has been made that would affect the Parish and we know of no intention to do so.The Parish Council has no power to decide on the outcome of any fracking application; this power is held by City of York Council or North Yorkshire County Council, depending on the site for which the application is made. We would, however, make our position absolutely clear and would strongly campaign for the City and/or County Councils to reject any such proposals in, or near, our area.

    We will do our utmost to defend both the village and the Parish if any fracking application is made in the future.
