A Balcombe resident has welcomed the report by West Sussex planners opposing Angus Energy’s proposed three-year well test in the village.
An oil company should be given another two years to decide whether its site in West Sussex is viable, planners recommended today.

The government has failed to comply with a ruling to release a secret report on challenges to a UK shale gas industry.
