Cllr Tim Rolt Answers - Why did the Local Authority Approve Fracking in the Area?

Question 

Why did the local authority approve Fracking in this area? Was there money involved perchance? Was there a democratic process followed in making this decision?


Cllr Tim Rolt’s Answer 

As far as I understand, Hampshire County Council has not approved fracking in Hampshire. This can be most clearly seen by reference to their ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ (FAQ) document, which can be referenced by using the following link:
