Brent Council to ban Fracking, following FoE protests

Brent Council has announced that it will take all legal measures to ensure that fracking did not take place in the borough, following the widely publicised action by Brent FoE, and the national campaign.

Brent FoE anti-Fracking event strikes a chord

Picture: Jan Nevill.

On Saturday 19th October, members of Brent Friends of the Earth held a successful action against the government's plans to press ahead with fracking for shale gas. Brent is among the areas that the government has designated for licensing for the technology, and while it is not likely that there would be drill holes at Willesden Green Station, it is not out of the question for fracking to take place in nearby Edgware, and certainly, if Boris Johnson gets his way, further afield in London.

Tell our representatives we don't want fracking!

Brent Friends of the Earth will be outside Willesden Green Station at 10.45am on Saturday 19th October 2013 showing our opposition to fracking. Please join us if you can.

We will be asking MPs, Local Assembly Members and the local council to promise that that they won’t allow it in Brent.

Brent FoE Objects to planned development at edge of Welsh Harp

Here is our latest objection to the development, sent on July 1st:


The Energy Bill Revolution

The Energy Bill RevolutionFamilies are suffering huge financial hardship, and one in four households can’t afford to heat their homes. Cold homes are damaging the health of our most vulnerable citizens, including children and older people.

Save Our Welsh Harp

The threat of the Barratt's development on the Welsh Harp is being opposed by a large and determined campaign involving residents, environmentalists and activists.

The development would threaten a local natural haven which contains a wildfowl reserve and a Site of Scientific Special Interest. Current blocks which are mainly 5 storeys high plus two of 12 storeys would be replaced by a new development that includes 26 storey high-rises. The housing would also be closer to the Welsh Harp's banks and the scheme also involves two pedestrian bridges over the reservoir.
