Ellesmere Port Frack Free has been set up to prevent an unconventional gas development occurring in Ellesmere Port that may harm the people, may damage the environment and will hold back the regeneration of the area.

Councillors have united in their opposition to the site and refused planning permission, but IGas, the developers, have taken it to appeal between the 15th and 24th of January, to be held in Chester Town Hall (which coincidentally is the height of an unconventional gas rig). The appeal is adjourned and will restart on 26th-28th February.

We need your help to stop this madness and secure a healthy, clean and prosperous future for Ellesmere Port.

IGas want to develop an unconventional gas well in an extremely inappropriate location (CH65 2HQ), which is shown below.
