Third Energy UK Gas Ltd have applied to North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) for a license to commence fracking for shale gas at the well site in Kirkby Misperton.
Fracking is an extraction technique whereby large quantities of liquid are injected at high pressure into subterranean rock in order to release pockets of gas.
The commencement of fracking in the Ryedale area is likely to have an impact on the infrastructure of the district and may have environmental impacts.
Given that this is a potentially controversial issue for many, Nawton Parish Council are keen to hear the views of parishioners regarding this application, which is currently open to consultation until the 14th October. Comments may be submitted using the ‘Contact us’ link at the top of the page.
