An online petition has been started to prevent fracking taking place in Stapleford.
Companies have been offered contracts to begin exploratory drilling in five stretches in the county including the areas around Stapleford and Beeston.
The contracts provide the first step towards drilling but do not necessarily mean drilling will take place. The winning bidders will still need to get planning permission.
To sign the petition, log on to change.org and search for ‘no to fracking in Broxtowe’.
