Public Meeting: Is Chew Magna at Risk from Fracking?

Monday 11th February 2013  7 – 9pm

Millennium Hall, South Parade BS40 8SH

Speakers and a Question & Answer session

  • What is Hydraulic fracturing (fracking)? 
  • Coal Bed Methane?
  • Unconventional Gas Drilling?
  • What are the potential risks to our communities?

Chew Magna is an area covered by a Petroleum Exploration and Development License, (PEDL.) PEDL licenses are sold by the Government to companies wishing to drill for unconventional gas. This puts our local area at risk of water and air pollution.  There are also dangers to human and animal health.

You are invited to come along to find out more about the science, the drilling methods and the possible impacts of unconventional gas drilling on your family and community.
