2022: Help Fund Crucial Expert Reports

The Expert Reports produced for the 2021 Application for oil drilling at West Newton proved absolutely invaluable in convincing the Councillors to reject it, and providing grounds for them to do so.

We now urgently need Revised Expert Reports, to challenge the 2022 Revised Planning Application, before March.

So independent planning experts, specialists in the field, have once again been commissioned, to study the revised oil drilling plans in detail. They will produce Expert Reports resulting in comprehensive Objections to the Application. They will also be shared on the West Newton Expansion page 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.

However it’s a lot of work, costing several thousand pounds, which we don’t yet have. The more raised, the more comprehensive the objections 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
