Star date: 22nd September 2013

SAY NO TO FRACKING IN SALFORD 

Public Meeting
Thursday, September 26th
Friends Meeting House, Eccles 7-9pm

As IGas prepare to do `explore' for gas under Barton Moss, the Salford's Say No To Fracking group has called a public meeting at the Friends Meeting House in Eccles this Thursday evening, with speakers from a range of anti-fracking groups.

More details here…


In October, energy company IGas is to begin exploratory drilling at Barton Moss, down to a depth of 10,000ft, for what activists believe will be shale gas which involves the process of fracking - the `disaster waiting to happen'...

If successful they will apply for permits to start coal bed methane extraction, fracking or both!" states the Say No To Fracking On Barton Moss campaign group "We plan to stop them before they get to that stage."

The group has called a public meeting for this Thursday evening at the Friends Meeting House in Eccles where the community can hear more about the potential damage caused by fracking and find out how to become part of the campaign against it. There will be speakers from Say No To Fracking on Barton Moss, Friends of the Earth, No Dash for Gas and more…


Public Meeting
Thursday, September 26th 7-9pm
Friends Meeting House
13 The Polygon Wellington Road

Hi there, I'm not sure who the best person to contact about this is - At the moment I don't know much about the plans for Barton Moss at all but I know that I am defintely AGAINST fracking! I unfortunately missed the meeting on Thursday but I was wondering if it might be possible to get an overview of what was discussed and find out if there's any way I can involve myself with the group in the future? Thanks for your help. Catherine Smart

PEPPA PIG COMMUNISM GRAFFITI GOES SUBVERSIVE IN SALFORD

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
