Have your say on fracking

The law says we must make objective decisions on fracking applications and we're committed to being open and transparent about approaches made to us by fracking companies.

We will widely publicise any planning application we receive for fracking development so local people have the opportunity to get involved and have their say.

If we do receive a planning application for fracking-related development, you will be able to comment online, via email or in writing.

We will list the planning applications we receive here:

Members of the public who have made written representations on a particular application will also have the opportunity to speak at the planning committee meeting.

If you would like to have your say about central Government's support for fracking you can contact your local MP (opens in a new window) or the Government's Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (opens in a new window).
