No case for oil wells in Sussex Weald
A briefing published by the Weald Action Group shows that the UK Government’s energy policy and local planning rules on onshore oil developments need to change.
The Weald Action Group has published a briefing on why we don’t need more onshore oil in the UK. It counters claims by the onshore oil industry that their developments are needed to maintain energy security; that UK oil has a lower carbon footprint than imported oil; that they provide local jobs; and that they are needed for plastic production.
The Weald Action Group is an umbrella for local groups campaigning against all forms of extreme extraction of oil and gas across the Weald and Isle of Wight.
