Have your say

The county council needs to tell residents more about its actions plans over the threat of fracking in Bucks, Labour has said.

The party said there has been a ‘deafening silence’ from the authority on the controversial process since a group was set up last year to look at the issue.

Lesley Clarke, cabinet member for the environment at the council, said it takes the possibility of fracking ‘very seriously’ and that a select committee has been ‘developing a detailed knowledge base about gas and oil exploration’.
