Find your candidate - Elections 2017


Communities across the country can stand up and vote for a frack free future.


2017 is the first opportunity to have your say.


Thursday 4th May is the date of the local government elections in England, Wales and Scotland, including combined local authority and mayoral elections.


The majority of areas under threat from fracking going to the polls in May, and it is clear that to stop fracking we have to change the minds of those in power, or change the people who make the decisions. This is your chance to do so.


A list of candidates will be published  when the ballot papers are released.

“To recover 15% of shale gas in Lancashire would need 33,000 wells on 5,500 pads. To be independent of gas imports, we would need to continue drilling 1,000 wells every year.” - Andy Aplin, Professor of Unconventional Petroleum, Durham University, March 2014


“The prospect of fracking in your area is a bit like putting a motorway or railway, like HS2, through your front garden. It is going to have an impact on the value of your property.”

- Ray Boulger, from leading mortgage advisor John Charcol, July 2015
