Energy company, Eni UK Ltd, has applied to the UK government to carry out a geological survey, which involves firing loud shock waves out of a submerged gun, between 1st June and 30th September.
We are delighted to announce that following objections from many quarters and across the political divide we have received a letter confirming the licences have been suspended.
This is a great victory but PLEASE sign our petition to The Rt Hon Greg Clark MP. Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy demanding these plans are not just suspended but scrapped.
A huge thanks to all those who have taken part in this campaign. The M4 relief road is no longer a threat. Wales is safe from an extortionate road that would have damaged our climate and ruined our wildlife.
First Minister Mark Drakeford listened to your concerns and has proved that he’s treating the recent climate emergency declaration seriously.
As many of you know the PCC passed a motion to declare a climate change emergency. This is a long way from the domination of the council by supporters of the oil & gas industry when climate change denial was to the fore. However we know that in order to translate this motion into action and change we will need to keep the pressure on.
At our next meeting on Monday 3rd June in the Balcony Room Queens Hall Narberth at 7.30pm there will be a chance to discuss our next steps with Cllr vic dennis and Labour candidate Marc Tierney.
COME ALONG with your ideas and enthusiasm
We will be attending the launch of
BUSY BEES at COLBY WOODLAND GARDENS
on Saturday 25th May 10am - 4pm
do come along, there will be lots of activities and things to see and learn. More information here

Friends of the Earth are soon to hand in the petition againt the proposed M4 relief road accross the gwent levels. They have over 5000 signatures. If you have not signed please do so now and pass the message on.
There are many good reasons to oppose this hugely expensive road. The Welsh Assembly has a statutory duty to promote Sustainable Development. This proposal is a clear, and possibly illegal, breach of this duty. The Assembly's own environmental regulator and advisory body Natural Resources Wales is against it. There are alternatives and we need to force WG to think again!
