Major landowners refuse to rule out fracking on their land

MAJOR land-owning organisations in the region have refused to rule out whether they will allow fracking on their land in the future.
The National Trust, which owns 54,400 acres (220 sq km) of land in Yorkshire and the North-East, said it had a “presumption against” fracking on its land.
But the trust said if it was happy in the future that the environmental and visual impact of fracking would be negligible, it could revise that stance.
The Church of England, one of the biggest landowners in the country, has left its stance on shale gas ambiguous, saying it had “no policy” on fracking.
