    Will the Balcombe blockade / protest continue next week?

    Here it was two A4 laminates, one in Banks Village halfway down a telegraph pole and the other on similar telegraph pole a long way down a track road that hardly anyone would have a need to go down. There was also a notice in the local paper but I have never seen any evidence of that. CR say the sent letters to everyone but oddly people that live the closest to the site didnt get one?

    Would you notice this? And even if you did would you have known over a year ago what fracking was all about?

    Do we know how Cuadrilla got planning permission?

    • West Sussex County Council received no objections. The issue here is that notification involved an A4 laminated document tacked to a post in a bit of woodland that very few visit. That’s the statutory notification, but it hardly counts as a public announcement.

      • Vanessa says:

        The laminate, that is no longer there:

        Was there not also some economy with the truth regarding submission to Parliament about the depth of the drill?
