Fossil fuels

Linked to our climate change work, we have teamed up with campaigners to resist moves for greater fossil fuel extraction. This has included working on legal challenges to Government policies that restrict renewable energy and promote shale gas as a positive contribution to a low-carbon economy. 

We specialise in cases concerning hydraulic fracturing (or fracking), having represented many anti-fracking campaigning groups in judicial reviews against planning permissions for fracking at Preston New Road (Lancashire), Ryedale (Yorkshire), Balcombe (West Sussex) and Harthill (Rotherham). Our strategic legal work also includes aiming to encourage public bodies to divest from funding fossil fuel extraction projects.
