Coun­cil’s bid to ban frack­ing in bor­ough

Yorkshire Post - - POLITICS & ECONOMY -

POL­I­TICS: Don­caster coun­cil­lors will vote on a mo­tion propos­ing to ban any fu­ture frack­ing ac­tiv­ity inside the bor­ough.

Town Ward coun­cil­lor Dave Shaw (Lab) will present a mo­tion to a meet­ing of the full coun­cil on Septem­ber 19 for a ban on local au­thor­ity-owned land.

Frack­ing in­volves in­ject­ing liquid at high pres­sure into the ground to force open ex­ist­ing fis­sures to ex­tract oil or gas.
