UKOG took over the License for Oil/Gas drilling last June from Celtique Energie. They plan to start exploratory drilling for oil using unconventional methods this spring at Broadford Bridge, 2 miles from Billingshurst. Local residents have deep concerns at the lack of public information on UKOG's acidising techniques, the change to permit without consultation and the expansion of the polluting fossil fuel industry so close to home. The Weald is faulted and such cracks, if disturbed, could lead to water pollution or seismic tremors. Air and noise pollution, traffic increase near the level crossing and pre-school and the industrialisation of the wider rural area are all risks that concern us. Oil development should not be taking place as it clearly affects climate change. We need to listen to the results of scientific studies and think of how such actions will affect future generations. If you want us all to have clean, renewable energies, to protect water supplies, safeguard public health and the environment, please join us.
