engineering careers  Government announces plans to fast-track local fracking bids

Local councils will now be given a period of 16 weeks to decide whether fracking can go ahead in their area. The Government believes fracking will give a huge boost to Britain’s engineering sector, although some say it damages the environment too much. Local councils often spend over a year making their decision on whether individual projects go ahead and politicians want to speed up that process.
