Shale gas toolkit, briefings and expertise
Recent developments in England have included industry commitments on community benefits, the announcement of a new ‘Shale Wealth Fund’ and a joint policy statement issued by the former Department for Energy & Climate Change (DECC) and the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), the aim of which is to ensure an efficient and certain planning process that delivers timely decisions and works effectively for both developers and the local community.
Pinsent Masons' dedicated Shale Gas & Fracking Group is actively involved with developments.

Our six-part toolkit provides background details on the exploration process and the consents required, as well as highlighting recent developments in shale gas policy, including an update on the tax regime, clarification of the planning process and an exploration of the issues surrounding objections together with practical advice on managing protest action.
