Frack Free Dudleston is affiliated to Frack Free Dee which is concerned about the whole of the Dee valley, which Dudleston is part of.

Of particular note in this area are:


– Farndon where locals first realised that something was about to happen when the drilling rig arrived. Government guidelines stipulate that there be public awareness consultation in advance of work starting and simply relying on the planning process to inform immediate neighbours and the Parish Council is not enough

– Upton in Chester where planning was granted in January 2014 without anyone realising but the drill rig has yet to arrive and the opposition is mounting

– Borras Road, Holt, Wrexham where the council decided the application at fullcommittee and decided to reject it
