Balcombe Community Fracking Blockade (South East)

loading

In Summer 2013 Cuadrilla Resources began trying to drill a Shale/Tight Oil exploration well at their fracking site in Balcombe, West Sussex. The local community mobilised resist Cuadrilla’s plans, a camp was set up and a 2 month blockade of the site ensued. See the full timeline here Fracking Balcombe: A Threatened Community 2010-2013, or Fracking In Balcombe: A Community Says No and The Real Significance Of The Blockade At Balcombe for more information. The fracking site is next to the London Road south of Balcombe, Sussex (see map below). For updates from the site see the Latest News feed.
