How we helped to end fracking
After the government ditched plans to force fracking on local communities, we’re looking back at what made the campaign such a huge success.
We worked with local campaigners to stand against the government’s plans for fracking, announced in 2018.
This would have been a disaster for efforts to fight the climate crisis, and for local communities unable to have their say on what happens in their local area. We weren’t going to stand for this, and united with campaign groups to tell the government to halt these damaging plans.
Fast-forward to 2019 to find CPRE campaigners celebrating across the country: the hard work at local and national level had prevailed. The government U-turned to pull their plans for fracking. People power had won out.
Tireless work from committed campaigners made this happen. Here’s our interactive timeline of how we did it.
