Rally outside Lancashire County Hall, Preston on Thursday 2 October

Lancashire County Council will soon be deciding whether or not to approve two application to frack in the county. Over 20,000 people have already objected, so let’s remind them of that and call on the councillors to say no to dirty energy like fracking, and yes to clean, renewable energy that can help our communities.

Let’s make our voices heard so that LCC are in no doubt that the people of Lancashire do not want shale gas extraction to go ahead in their county or anywhere else. Frack Free Lancashire groups and friends will be meeting outside the council meeting on 2nd October to make our voices heard.

Please try and join us from 12.00 pm outside Lancashire County Hall on Thursday, 2 October.

Then we’d love to invite you to meet Friends of the Earth’s campaigners for a chat over tea and coffee at the Station Hotel – 11 Butler St – from 1.00 pm (just opposite Preston station).

Frack Free Lancashire events


Over the next few weeks RAFF, together with all the other Lancashire-based groups, will be out and about in various locations collecting signatures for our letters objecting to Cuadrilla’s planning applications for Little Plumpton (Preston New Road) and Roseacre. Please do think about helping us. Are you willing to go on your local high street and ask people to sign letters? Maybe you could display a Frack Free Lancashire poster in your window, or in a shop, etc. We can supply you with letters, posters, etc. You can contact us at Thousands of people have already signed but we need more to do so and we only have until the end of August/beginning of September before the consultation period closes.

If you would like RAFF to host a public information meeting in your community, please get in touch
