On Monday 14th July, at 6pm, the councillors of Wirral Borough Council are having a meeting where there is a motion on the agenda to address the use of fracking, UCG and CBM in the area.
Please come along and help us show that the public feel strongly about this.

This short film has been produced to help spread awareness of the risks of Underground Coal Gasification, Coal Bed Methane Extraction and Fracking on the Wirral.
iGas, the company that want to extract Coal Bed Methane across the Wirral, has applied for planning permission to drill an exploration well in Ellesmere Port.
They have advertised a ‘drop-in’ for the public to ask for further information where there will be iGas representatives present.
The event takes place on Thursday 10th July 2014, between 3-8pm at The Holiday Inn, Waterways, Lower Mersey Street, Ellesmere Port, CH65 2AL.
On Tuesday 17th June 2014 we held a public awareness meeting to inform the Wirral community about the dangers of Fracking, Underground Coal Gasification and Coal Bed Methane Extraction in the area.
Representatives from Frack Off: The Extreme Energy Action Network were there to show us the growing body of evidence against fracking and extreme energy extraction including the threats to our health, the environment and our wildlife.
Over 200 concerned Wirral residents came to the meeting to discuss and debate.
On Saturday April 19th a number of Merseyside bands got together to help raise awareness of Fracking to our region.
