Frack Free Harrogate District is a locally based group aiming to articulate public opposition to and concerns about Fracking. Find us on Facebook here
This area has not yet been subject to bids but is likely to be in the future as Harrogate sits on Bowland Shale.
Our purpose is to mobilise local opposition in advance. Government and the Fracking industry are apprehensive about well organised local resistance.
Public opinion is largely hostile to Fracking but passive until drilling starts. Opponents of Fracking need to join forces and act ahead of the bids.
York City, Hull and Ryedale Councils and others across the UK have voted to resist Fracking. We need to stand with such councils and encourage others to do the same.
