Frack Free Hartlepool is a group of concerned citizens who work together with Frack Free Cleveland to raise awareness of and fight the proposed installation of Underground Coal Gasification off the coast of Hartlepool and stretching north to Amble.

The next meeting is on Thursday 11th July 2015 at Hartlepool Rovers FC at 7pm. All welcome. We do not have any political persuasion as we believe fracking and UCG are matters that go beyond party politics.

This is our licensed area. It belongs to Cluff Natural Resources

We are pleased that two new groups, Seaham Action Group and Easington Action Group, have taken on our fight against the exploitation of the north east coast by rapacious UCG industries. Thanks to them Seaham Council has become the first on the NE coast to say no to UCG. We urge other communities up the coast to join us. Contact us if you need help to set up a group. Together we can fight this menace.

It is a fact that we cannot burn all our fossil fuel reserves and stay below 2°C. Given this fact, developing questionable methods of extracting fossil fuels is suicidal. We need a fast and just transition to renewable energy

Since the Scottish government put a moratorium on UCG Algy Cluff has turned his sights on Durham where Cluff Natural Resources own UCG Licences from just south of Sunderland to Hartlepool. Any UCG accidents off the coast of Northumberland or Durham could wash south and affect coastal areas from Redcar to Whitby and beyond
