Following the decision of Lancashire County Council to reject the fracking planning application, West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“Lancashire County Council members took a brave decision but ultimately the right decision for the residents and communities of Lancashire.
“Being opposed to fracking and having voted for a moratorium I wholeheartedly support this decision.
“No doubt this is not the end of the fight. It is important that residents’ voices continue to be heard over the interests of big business. I will continue to work to work with local residents and campaign groups opposed to fracking.”
