Gerwyn indicated his desire to drill ‘just south of Weston-super-Mare’ and to build a ‘small modular power station’ to convert any shale gas into electricity.

We were told to expect planning permission submissions within the year, and drilling with two years, it is now particularly important that we quickly develop the skills and capacity to watch planning permissions coming in to Somerset & North Somerset councils.

Experienced campaigner and FFNS’s awesome mentor, Louise Somerville Williams, pointed out again on Facebook that we need to look out for seismic testing and to spread the message to local landowners and farmers.
