Petition text

Please reject the current and all future applications to frack in North Yorkshire. Fracking would damage our beautiful countryside, and pollute our water, air and soil. Please say no to fracking and protect North Yorkshire.
Energy company Third Energy, which is 97% owned by Barclays, have applied to frack in Ryedale. North Yorkshire County Council will probably be making a decision on this in February 2016 .

A massive petition will show them that people in North Yorkshire are against Third Energy's plans - and any future applications to frack in the county. Can you sign the petition now and tell the council to reject Third Energy's fracking application?
