Christchurch declared a fracking-free zone

Christchurch declared a fracking-free zone by The National, April 12, 2012, Otago Daily News
Christchurch City Council has voted unanimously to declare Christchurch a fracking-free zone. … The stance is because of concerns about the impact of fracking on the local environment, including contamination of the city’s underground water supply and fracking’s link to earthquakes. The council also decided to call on the country’s other territorial/local authorities and regional councils to declare their areas fracking-free. … “The Government should listen to the people of Christchurch and declare a moratorium immediately on any new fracking wells,” said Mr Hughes.
