      6 May 10:00 - 16:00: Fracking: The Case for and Against
      There are currently 176 Petroleum Exploration Development Licences for onshore oil and gas in the UK. The new round of onshore licensing, which will be complete by the summer, will likely double the area currently under exploration, and especially enlarge the areas in which unconventional energy sources are sought. This seminar examines the case for and against fracking from a local government perspective, dealing in particular with: Climate change impacts, the potential economic benefits to local communities, environmental risks and other local impacts, the regulatory regime and alternative energy sources.
