The Sustainable Design and Construction SPG does not currently address specific planning requirements for an oil or shale gas fracking installation. 

However, comprehensive guidance to minerals planning authorities in dealing with fracking applications is provided in the Government's Planning practice guidance for onshore oil and gas (July 2013):
