Prevent mineral extraction for onshore and off shore gas (fracking) in North Somerset, especially on the Bleadon Levels. Why has there been no local information on what this may entail in our communities? Keep the Bleadon settlement boundary and prevent development in the Bleadon and surrounding communities.

How does the Local Plan address the immediate fracking issue… e.g. NSC mercury article 19 November 2018 re: NSC Councillors vote to determine local fracking bids, rather that permitted development. Keep the fossils fuels in the ground and prevent CO2 buildup through any subsequent use.

Prevent fracking in North Somerset especially on the Bleadon levels.
