Thornton Parish Council object to Aurora’s plan to drill and frack at Altcar on the grounds that it will have a significant detrimental effect on the locale, including Thornton and its residents, that will far exceed any suggested benefits, in relation to:

  • Reduction in local air quality
  • Risk to the water supply and increased flood risks
  • Risk of induced seismic events
  • Increased traffic and the impact on local roads
  • Risks to biodiversity and the green belt
  • Failure to work towards climate change targets set out in both domestic and international law
