The Government plans to change the law so that people cannot stop fracking firms drilling under our land and homes. WinACC is concerned about fracking because it releases more fossil fuel for us to burn, creating more greenhouse gas and adding to global warming. See our pages about shale gas and fracking.

Coming events

October 2014

Come along to this free event hosted by Hampshire Sustainable Business Network to find out more about keeping your business sustainable and how to overcome environmental challenges.

November 2014

A talk by Polly Higgins, the lawyer developing the Ecocide Act - the Law to protect the planet.

The Eridicate Ecocide campaign is in its final year and it is imperative that everyone gets behind the cause, signs the petition, and generally makes a fuss about it, standing up to call for the law to be introduced. Whether this means writing to your local MP, MEP, newspapers or sharing the campaign widely, we have an opportunity to make a real difference, and now is the time to do it.

The Local Plan controls new housing and development. Winchester City Council plans to publish a draft of the Local Plan Part 2 in October, for consultation.

This meeting will be an opportunity to discuss, feed back our views and question Steve Opacic, Winchester City Council Planner:

WinACC's name has come out of the hat to get the fees from stallholders at the Car Boot Sale on Sunday 30 November at the old Cattle Market on the corner of Worthy Lane and Andover Road, Winchester.
This is the last sale before Xmas, so help us make loads of money!
We'll have several WinACC stalls.  So please:
- Collect children's clothes and toys for the WinACC low carbon xmas stall.
- Have a good clear out of 2013 unwanted presents, to make room for 2014!
