Seismic Testing For Shale Gas Done In Sussex Before Town Council Meets

Unlike Hampton, Sussex Town Council didn't get the chance to have a say on whether seismic testing for shale gas would go ahead or not.

Seismotion, in behalf of Windsor Energy was to go before Town Council at a special meeting tonight but the testing has already been done. It happened last night

 As you might expect, Mayor Ralph Carr is not happy about it calling the action bad public relations.

Carr says he was belabouring under the misapprehension the town had the final say but concedes it looks like he was mistaken. 

When asked by CHSJ News what people in the town think about shale gas exploration, Carr estimates opinion is split right down the middle.
