Horse Hill: Our Next Steps – public meeting

Surrey County Council has approved plans for four more oil wells and 25 years of oil drilling at Horse Hill, near Horley, in East Surrey.

This would mean a total seven wells (one for water reinjection) – and flies in the face of both Surrey County Council’s and the country’s climate commitments. We need to make a rapid transition away from fossil fuels – not drill for new, hard-to-extract oil.

Campaigners are seeking legal advice on the possibility of challenging this decision. We believe that the planning officer’s report to the planning committee was based on outdated policy on climate and change and took the wrong legal approach to other issues.

Come to a Public Meeting on Wednesday 25 September to join the discussion about how we can make sure this disastrous scheme does not go ahead.

Where: Catholic Church Hall, 4 Vicarage Lane, Horley RH6 8AR
When: Wednesday 25 September, 8pm

All welcome – bring your friends and neighbours
