Creating a ‘fracking revolution’ and ‘liberalising’ the planning laws is something the Conservatives stood on in the last general election.
This week in the Commons I raised concerns about changes to planning laws which could see permission for new fracking sites forced through, completely ignoring the opinions and decisions of local council planning committees.
Local commitees make planning decisions based on a wide range of factors, not just the financial bottom line. This can include things like environmental concerns and whether something will be a blight on the local landscape.
All these concerns could simply be ignored though, with fracking forced on communities that would have absolutely no say in the matter from their local representatives.
