Permits granted – but planning permission still required. Live in the region? Join the fightback today!
The Environment Agency announced this afternoon it has granted permits to Third Energy to allow it to frack for shale gas at the KM8 well at Kirby Misperton in North Yorkshire.
Three permits cover:
- Mining waste
- Discharges into groundwater
- Radioactive substances
The company still needs planning permission for the operation.
The anti-fracking movement is strong in north Yorkshire. Companies have licences across the region. Want to get involved in the fight to defend your community from fracking? www.frackfreeryedale.org
