Bassetlaw against Fracking is a single issue group of residents of Bassetlaw. We set up in response to the threats posed by unconventional gas and oil extraction, often referred to as extreme energy.
We are non political and welcome all members drawn from Bassetlaw.
It is our intention to organise and oppose unconventional Gas extraction. This includes hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in Bassetlaw, until regulations and guarantees are given to ensure that there will be no negative effects on our environment, livelihoods or health.
We support any organisation whose aims are to oppose any type of unconventional gas or oil exploration.
We call on the government to legislate to ensure that all companies involved in the business of unconventional gas extraction are required to carry out full environmental impact assessments prior to any exploratory drilling taking place.
