National Trust Forced to Allow Seismic Surveying at Clumber Park

The National Trust has been forced by INEOS, a fracking company, to withdraw legal opposition to seismic surveying at Clumber Park. Seismic surveying is the first step in ascertaining if hydraulic fracturing (more commonly known as fracking) is possible in an area.
The National Trust released a statement in which they said: ‘We can assure you that the Trust remains fundamentally against fracking at Clumber Park, and will fight tooth and nail to protect the Park.’ The trust is now focusing efforts on making sure that wildlife is protected during the seismic surveying.
