False Fracking Farce

?For the past few days we have been trying to solve the mystery behind fracking rumours that were brought to our attention after a document was shared stating that fracking was due to begin on Healey Nab later this year from a pen drive that was found on a council car park.

This document was shared on the Chorley Then and Now Facebook page and one of the page admins removed the document and shared the information with us.

We have since investigated the information regarding plans for fracking to begin on Healey Nab later this year and can confirm that the document is false and that there are no plans for fracking anywhere in the borough.

We don’t know who has created this document but we have been in contact with Lancashire County Council, who would determine the result of a fracking application and Cuadrilla, which was named the contractor for fracking and they have both confirmed that the document is in fact false.
