Support for fracking bid
Some 300 people and organisations are backing the Friends of Ryedale Gas Exploration (FORGE) in the campaign to win planning approval for Third Energy’s site at Kirby Misperton.
Spokeswoman for FORGE, Lorraine Allanson, said: “We strongly believe that the scheme will be of benefit to the economy and economic growth of North Yorkshire, and business opportunities will follow. The planned work will help support the continuing employment of those who work at the generating station at Knapton as well as supporting direct employment of those working in the industries and services through indirect jobs.”
A decision on the plan is due to be made by North Yorkshire County Council on Monday November 2.
