Who responded to Cuadrilla’s Balcombe planning application?

17th March 2014

Of the 900+ public responses to Cuadrilla’s planning application to flow test its exploratory oil well at Balcombe, 767 included a postcode.

Of these, almost half (46%) were from the RH postcode area, which covers parts of Mid Sussex, Chichester, Horsham, Wealden and Lewes districts, as well as parts of Surrey. A total of 207 (27%) were from the RH17 6 postcode area, which covers Balcombe and surrounding villages. 15% of responses were from Brighton and Hove and 4% from Lewes. Just 2% of responses were from London.

InvestigatingBalcombeAndCuadrilla.com plotted the postcodes using Google Fusion tables and produced the maps below. More details on consultation analysis
