"The Moss Alliance" was set up in January 2018 to bring together local groups opposed to onshore high volume hydraulic fracturing (fracking) in our beloved countryside. We were expecting a planning application for exploratory drilling/ fracking at Altcar Moss, West Lancashire, near Formby and this has now been published on Lancashire County Council's website for consultation:
To date we have raised only part of the funds we need which is for Stage 1 of advice from expert Planning Consultants for a provisional assessment of the application, but it will not be sufficient to go into further detail on the main subjects for objection. Therefore we are appealing for funds to help us, in the limited time available, to prepare the case in the best degree of detail we can and produce an objection document that will merit the attention of Planning Officers and Committee members. It will also assist local Parish Councils and residents in their own objections.
This will be just one of many applications in West Lancashire/Sefton if we are not able to stop it and it is therefore essential that residents' objections are framed on legitimate planning considerations. Please help if you can, any amount will make a difference!
