Our plan

What we want to do. Join us today

Build the team

Our pledge:

 

"We will promote and raise awareness of the candidates who pledge to stand against fracking."

 

You are vital to the plan. Volunteers and campaigners will be needed and our crowdfunder will be used to produce materials supporting candidates opposed to fracking.

 

The majority of areas under threat from fracking blocks are going to the polls in May and it is becoming clear that to stop fracking we have to change the minds of those in power who decide, or change the people who make the decisions.

 

Frack Free United do not favour any particular political party or affiliation.  We are purely focused on stopping fracking in our communites and countryside across the UK.

Sign up candidates

Candidate pledge:

 

‘If my Council area constituency, division or ward is at risk of fracking, I will actively oppose it and I will oppose fracking nationally.’

 

Frack Free United urge all candidates in the forthcoming County Council elections to sign our candidates’ pledge to oppose fracking in their area and across the UK. We will advise and inform candidates on the issues of fracking for their campaign.

 

Candidates are in no way going to be compromised in their ability to sit on planning committees to consider fracking related applications, your actions are protected under the Localism Act. Want more info? see our sign up page for details.

Raise awareness

Frack Free United will publish a list of all candidates and highlight those who have signed up to oppose fracking when the ballot papers are released.

 

You can use our 'where is fracking?' map to find out about fracking in your area.

 

Our supporters will campaign to highlight the issue of fracking and raise awareness of the candidates and their position on fracking.

 

We urge you to let your local candidates know we are watching and urge them oppose fracking.

or a tranquil environment may suffer losses from this change, such as agriculture, tourism, organic farming, hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation" - DEFRA report: "Shale Gas Rural Economy Impacts Paper", 1st July 2015
