Case

Stop fossil fuel drilling in the Surrey Hills

Good Law Project supported legal action by a local community group to protect an important green space on the edge of Surrey Hills. They want to prevent an exploratory drilling project from taking place next to their village, which was greenlit by the Government.

Our involvement in the legal challenge has now ended.

Case overview

A Government Minister may have flip-flopped on carbon emissions, but that wasn’t enough for the Court of Appeal, who have refused Protect Dunsfold the chance to challenge a gas exploration scheme in the Surrey Hills.

We’ve been supporting local campaigners as they’ve fought to stop drilling rigs rolling through their village, causing irreparable damage to businesses, landscapes and wildlife.
