What Can I Do?

Great things can be achieved when communities stand together, no matter how you participate, 

There are so many ways that you can support our aims. Whether regularly or occasionally, individual or as a part of our team, making cakes or handing out leaflets, talking to neighbours or signing petitions.

Active Involvement
Participation in the Planning Process
 Local Involvement

CORE GROUP MEETINGS

We have a core group of members who meet on a regular basis to progress our action plan.  If you are a member, can attend regular meetings  and feel you have specialised skills, knowledge or experience that could benefit our group,  you are welcome to attend our meetings and become more actively involved. Let us know by making contact and telling us how you would like to be more involved

MEETINGS, RALLIES AND PEACEFUL PROTEST

There may come a time when we will organise public meetings and community events to

  • RAISE PUBLIC AWARENESS

  • COLLECT NAMES ON PETITIONS

  • RECRUIT MEMBERS

  • PEACEFULLY OPPOSE INDUSTRY ACTIVITY

  • PEACEFULLY PROTECT SIGNIFICANT AREAS 

Prior to public action, participants will be asked to attend specific training and advice meetings. All participants will be expected to uphold the principles of our constitution

There are lots of things you can do on your own in your local area, or with a small group of like-minded people who live close by. We can help put you with ideas and materials so you can:

  • SPREAD THE WORD

  • DONATE TO OUR FUND

  • DISPLAY POSTERS

  • KEEP UP WITH LATEST DEVELOPMENTS

  • SHARE INFORMATION ON SOCIAL MEDIA

  • SIGN PETITIONS

  • ORGANISE A PRESENTATION IN YOUR AREA

  • ORGANISE A COFFEE MORNING

  • SET UP A LOCAL HUB OF HELPERS

  • ORGANISE FUNDRAISING IDEAS

  • HELP WITH LEAFLET DISTRIBUTION

  • KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD

  • SPEAK TO YOUR LOCAL PARISH/TOWN COUNCIL

  • SPEAK TO YOUR COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVE

Once planning applications begin it is the IWC responsibility to publicise the appplication.

At this point all members of COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE ISLAND HAVE THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AND  SUBMIT THEIR OPINIONS ON THE APPLICATION.

Frack Free Isle of Wight WILL BE  HELPING AND ADVISING YOU how best to do this when the time comes

ONE OF THE MOST THINGS YOU CAN DO IS TO RESPOND TO THE APPLICATION AND  ENCOURAGE  AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO RESPOND.

​WHY?

Because if there is no public response to the application and

  • it is accepted by the IWC, or

  • if it is rejected by the IWC and then overruled by the Secretary of State,

then there will be no grounds for a JUDICIAL REVIEW  of the decision.
