No More Police Fracking Costs

 

We believe that local residents should not be put at risk of a lack of policing and lack of crime prevention as a result of the commercial operations of fracking (unconventional gas extraction) companies.

The principle of re-charging police costs for commercial operators already exists for large football matches, public events, outside concerts, specialist transportation needs and so on and so forth. There is no reason for local people to subsidise fracking in their community.

I/ We the undersigned petition Cheshire councils which issuing test or drilling licences to fracking companies to ensure that the commercial operator covers the full cost of any policing

    Policing costs are bound to be incurred where any fracking activity is being planned or undertaken. It is a cost that must be borne by the company undertaking this activity, as it arises directly from their actions. It is entirely unreasonable to expect that cost to be borne by the local police service with the risk of a diminution of policing for the local community.
