Tuesday 17 February 6.30pm, Milton Rooms Malton
On Tuesday 17th February, at the Milton Rooms in Malton at 6.30 pm, there is to be an Extraordinary Council Meeting to discuss fracking and to vote on a motion to declare Ryedale District Council frack free. This meeting is open to the public.
The Slingsby Website understands that Frack Free Ryedale’s 1,000-signature petition will be handed in and petition organiser David Davis will have three minutes to speak about why the organisation wants the council to become frack free. Then there will be a report on the public debate held on 4th February. The Council debate on the vote and the vote itself will then follow.
The issue of fracking in Ryedale has raised a great deal of public concern. Already, Malton , Norton and Kirbymoorside have voted to be frack-free. This is your opportunity to see and be part of local democracy in action.
