Ryedale District Council decision on KM8

On Tuesday 15th March, Ryedale District Council’s Planning Committee will decide whether or not to object to Third Energy’s application to frack at Kirby Misperton. Their recommendation will have significant influence on the final decision due to be taken at County Hall in Northallerton in April.

Take action today – Contact your Ryedale district councillor and ask them to ensure that the Planning Committee objects to fracking at Kirby Misperton.

On Tuesday, Frackfree Ryedale will be holding a peaceful protest outside the Planning Committee meeting at Ryedale District Council, Old Malton Road, Malton YO17 7HH from 5pm. Please bring banners and placards.
