A MEETING between anti-fracking protestors and West Sussex County Council was ‘productive’.

Yesterday’s meeting (December 18), follows on from a meeting last month after protestors camped out at County Hall.

The group which met with leader of the council Louise Goldsmith included representatives of anti-fracking groups from Balcombe, Wisborough Green, and Fernhurst as well as the people camped outside County Hall.

Cllr Goldsmith, said: “It was a productive meeting and we had a good discussion about what the County Council’s role is with regard to oil and gas exploration.

“We understand and respect the position of those protesting against oil and gas exploration and will continue to talk with them and share information.”
