UPDATE 16 JULY 19: Somerset West and Taunton District Council resolve to be Frack Free



See the Frack Free Exmoor, Quantocks and Sedgemoor (FEQS) post including the West Somerset Free Press article on 21 June, "Lib Dems aiming to make W Somerset 'fracking-free'":

 "We have been chomping the bit to post this news!


The Lib Dem held Somerset West & Taunton District Council will propose a Frack Free Zone motion at the full council meeting scheduled to take place on 16th July. Check out the MENU option on the left-hand side of our Facebook page to read the full briefing document [BOB note: See Bleadon reference on page 4/5]


Whilst the Lib Dems are in the majority on the council it is not a 'done deal' so we cannot sit back and assume this motion will be resolved.


Please write to your local district councillor, regardless of their political affiliation, and ask them to support the motion:


Dear Cllr XXXX

I am a resident of XXXX and I am writing to you, as my District Councillor, to request that you carefully read the Lib Dem Briefing paper on making Somerset West and Taunton a 'Frack Free Zone' and that you support the motion being proposed at the Full Council Meeting on 16th July.

Yours sincerely,

(Your Name & Date)


You can find their email contact details here"
