Concerned about fracking?

Over the past few weeks several Alton residents have contacted me to express their concern regarding the possibility of fracking activity in East Hampshire.  I  am not aware of any evidence of significant gas (or oil) reserves in East Hampshire to merit fracking in the area at this stage.

If you would like to know more Hampshire County Council are responsible for minerals planning policy and have produced a helpful guide: http://documents.hants.gov.uk/mineralsandwaste/onshoreoilandgas-faq.pdf
