West Sussex County Council says no more than 100 people will be able to attend the planning committee meeting which will consider Cuadrilla’s application to test drill its well at Balcombe. To gain admission you must hold a ticket issued by the council. And to qualify for a ticket you must have commented on the planning application.
The meeting, on Tuesday April 29th, would normally have been held at County Hall in Chichester. But because of building work, the meeting has been moved to the smaller County Hall North in Horsham.
Matthew Evans, Democractic Services Officer, said: “In the interests of safety and to manage numbers on the 29 April, tickets are available for 100 people to attend the meeting.” A small number of tickets will be available on the day of the meeting.
To qualify for a ticket, Mr Evans said, you will need to have submitted a representation on the application. The council received more than 900 comments, almost all of which were objections.
To gain admission, contact Mr Evans with your name and contact details on 0330 2222 538 or at: firstname.lastname@example.org
West Sussex County Council plans to webcast the meeting live and make a recording available afterwards.
- All the principal members of the committee will be at the meeting, except for John Rogers, who will be substituted by Jeremy Hunt.
