Wednesday 4th February, 6.30pm, at the Milton Rooms, Malton.
In response to requests from public and councillors alike, Ryedale District Council has organized a PUBLIC DEBATE on the vexed issue of fracking in Ryedale. This was announced in the local press on Wednesday. The debate will take place on Wednesday 4th February at the Milton Rooms, Malton Market Square, at 6.30 p.m.
THIS IS A TICKETED EVENT and tickets are limited to 250.
This is an excellent opportunity to get more information about the subject of hydraulic fracturing of shale deposits to release gas (“fracking”) and the ways in which it might affect our lives here.
Tickets can be obtained from the relevant page on the RDC website. This is the link:
You can also apply via phone 01653 600666 or email [email protected] or write to Public Meeting, Ryedale District Council, Ryedale House, Malton YO17 7HH.
The closing date for applications is noon on Wednesday, 28 January.
Tickets will be allocated on the basis of one ticket per application.
Third Energy will be represented at the debate, along with other experts in the field.
A representative from Frack-Free Ryedale will also take part in the debate.
Slingsby residents may recall that Third Energy commissioned the surveys in our area during last summer. The company has not said if it intends to frack in our immediate area, but it has announced its intention to frack at Kirby Misperton, where locals will shortly be meeting the company – this evening, Friday 23 Jan at 6pm in the Village Hall.
The Slingsby Village website hopes to keep you up-to-date with the latest on this developing issue.
