The fracking map that shows the reality for Devon’s AONBs and its World Heritage site

As Greenpeace says:

“In fact, so far as we can tell, the announcement actually makes it easier for developers to drill in national parks – by giving the communities secretary the automatic right to overrule local authorities who reject an application.”

Why is it that politicians of all parties can rarely just tell us the plain truth? In this case: “Yes, we may well allow fracking in AONBs and World Heritage sites but whether you like that or not we have decided that the country as a whole needs this energy source more than you need your Areas of Outstanding Beauty and World Heritage sites”. At least then we would all know where we stand.
