We campaigned to stop the government fast-tracking fracking – and we won!

We ran a hard-hitting campaign opposing the government’s plans to fast-track fracking through the planning system, over the heads of local people. We argued that fracking was bad for the countryside, local communities and the environment – and in the end, common sense prevailed! The government has now dropped its proposals and halted fracking altogether: great news for communities and the countryside.

Tireless work from committed campaigners made this happen. Here’s our interactive timeline of how we did it.
