Notice of Motion

Carbon Emissions, Hydraulic Fracturing (aka Fracking) and Exploitation of New Sources of Fossil Fuel


To be moved by Councillor Derek Antrobus and seconded by Councillor Rob Sharpe.


This Council expresses concern that exploiting new sources of fossil fuel, including unconventional gas, undermines the commitments to reduce carbon emissions to mitigate climate change and diverts resources away from investment in a safe and secure renewable energy future.


The Council notes the important environmental, health and safety issues involved in determining applications for hydraulic fracturing (“fracking) and believes that such issues are best dealt with by local communities through their local planning authority.


This Council is strongly opposed to the commitment in the Conservative Party manifesto to weaken or override the Council's powers as a planning authority when considering any applications for fracking.


This Council will take steps, within its statutory powers and within the framework of the Greater Manchester Low Carbon Hub, to work to harness the abundant sustainable and renewable energy resources available locally; reaffirms its commitment to work towards becoming carbon neutral by 2050; and will review its strategy to develop a more challenging target.
