Dear RAFF Supporter,
We need your help! As you know, Cuadrilla has submitted planning applications for fracking in Roseacre and Little Plumpton. All eyes are currently on Lancashire because if Cuadrilla gets permission to frack here then the rest of the country will follow. We now have a few weeks to show the rest of the world that we oppose these plans.
On Saturday 21st June, between 10am and 4pm, in St John’s Square Blackpool, RAFF, along with 15 other Fylde, Blackpool, Wyre and Preston campaign groups, is launching the Frack Free Lancashire campaign.
The campaign will give Lancashire residents the opportunity to oppose Cuadrilla’s planning applications, whilst also raising awareness of the dangers that shale gas development poses to communities. It represents the real public consultation that will reach out to the wider community and let the public know that their voice counts.
If you can make it please do come along and support us. There will be an opportunity to sign an objection letter and we will ensure that it is sent to Lancashire County Council's planning committee.
Following the launch of Frack Free Lancashire, each campaign group will be regularly setting up a stall in their town centres to inform the public and distribute objection letters. Again, we need your help. Please can you spare an hour or so to help us and the other groups to get signatures in your town centre? If you can help please email us at email@example.com and we will get back to you asap.
We appreciate that not all of you will be able to make the launch in Blackpool this Saturday and so we will be adding the objection letter to our website very soon with instructions on how to send it to Lancashire County Council. We will email you again once it is available.
Thank you for your valuable support.
