A full meeting on the 15th November at Portsmouth City Council unanimously approved a motion embracing all parties to object to the drilling of oil and gas at Markwells Wood in South Down National Park.

Portsmouth joins Chichester City Council, Portsmouth Water and the Environment Agency, plus several Parish Councils and also 1400 residents. Havant Borough Council has been contacted by a councillor and asked to do the same.

There is still time to object before Thursday 17th November 2016. Click Here to find out more details of writing a letter of objection to the planning application on the Markwells Wood Watch website.

Markwells Wood Watch & Friends of the Earth has run a copybook campaign.
