An upcoming community meeting is expected to see an energetic debate around the hot topic of drilling for gas extraction, already approved to take place in the Cumbernauld area.

Next Tuesday’s Cumbernauld Environmental Society meeting will discuss plans by the company ReachCSG to drill within the Scottish Water site at Deerdykes.

Planning permission has already been granted by North Lanarkshire Council and the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) has licensed the activity, which many fear will lead to fracking in the area.
