It’s been reported how Labour controlled Salford Council have entered a 15 million pound deal with Canadian firm Igas formally Nexes, to start Fracking from the last green belt in the city, as early as next year.
Month’s before this revelation was revealed Peel Holdings had been denied plans to start building on same site, leaving Igas to pave the way and build a plant and explore for the shale gas, in 2011 the government banned fracking from the UK after it had caused two minor earthquakes tremors in Blackpool.
The land where Igas, In partnership with the Salford City Council want to pump water into the ground, to force gas out, is located off the M62 Barton Moss Lane, other residents homes are Salford Rugby Grounds and Barton Aerodrome, both are very close to the site along with many houses where people reside surrounding these controversial plans.
Not Safe And Under Your House
Locals are very worried and unhappy about the plans because it’s been noted how nobody has been informed by the council, or local Labour Councillors, who say they represent and speak for the community.
Salford spokesman acting Northwest Regional Organiser, Gary Tumulty, British National Party tells site “It disgraceful how the council treats this city, and we are just expected to put up with it, this is people lives they are playing with and not a monopoly board, Fracking is not safe, plans have to be scrapped before we have any tragedy, incidents on our hands here”.
