Aug 2021: Help Fund Expert Reports

Independent planning experts, specialists in the field, have been commissioned to study the Planning Application for the West Newton A Expansion in detail. They will produce Expert Reports resulting in comprehensive Objections to the Application. They will also be shared on the Fossil Free East Yorkshire website here to help others Object. They will give specific grounds for objection, with reference to points of policy, planning law, and precedence, making a powerful argument to reject the application.

Such Expert Reports have been important in similar applications elsewhere being rejected.

However it’s a lot of work, costing several thousand pounds. A few thousand has already been raised, and work is well underway, with some promising signs. However there is still a shortfall, so any contributions are gratefully received. The more raised, the more comprehensive the Objection can be, and the more chance we have of blocking the Application.


The groups of Frack Free East Yorkshire are run entirely by local, concerned people volunteering their time.  We do this by raising awareness through leaflets, newsletters, events, talks, film screenings, stalls, demonstrations and more.

We operate on a small, thrifty budget, relying on generous donations, mainly from individuals.

Your donation will help pay for:

  • printing information leaflets to raise awareness of the impacts of oil and gas industry
  • printing of posters and flyers to promote events
  • hire of village halls and community venues for information raising events
  • travel expenses for speakers, when required
  • display materials for stalls
  • banners and placards
