Shawlands and Strathbungo Community Council is pressing for a Glasgow-wide declaration to ban shale gas exploration and exploitation.
It wants fracking to be put on the agenda for a community council forum event on May 20, and says Southside Campaign Against Fracking should also be invited.
Meanwhile its spokesman says there’s concern about a perceived lack of discussion among community councils about the present public consultation on the issue.
Its spokesman said: “Shawlands and Strathbungo Community Council consider a joint declaration by all of Glasgow’s community councils in support of a ban on shale gas exploration and possible extraction as one method for community councils to protect the diverse communities we represent.
“A joint declaration by Glasgow’s community councils to ban shale gas exploration and possible extraction would also lend support to the Glasgow City Council decision to ban shale gas exploration and exploitation within the city boundaries.”
