Proposed planning reforms for shale gas development.
The Government announced a moratorium (delay or suspension of an activity) on fracking on 1 November, 2019, banning hydraulic fracturing activity in England with immediate effect.
Ministers took the decision on the basis of a report published by the UK Oil and Gas Authority in October 2019, which warned that it was not possible to predict the probability or magnitude of seismic activity at the Preston New Road site in Lancashire, the UK's only active fracking site.
The government also confirmed that it will not be taking forward proposed planning reforms for shale gas development at this time.
