A group opposed to Cuadrilla’s plans to frack in the Fylde area of Lancashire has reacted angrily to news that the government is offering local people money to take part in surveys about shale gas.
A group of residents opposed to shale gas launched a blimp balloon this morning at the proposed site of Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road fracking wells to mark the height of the 53m drilling rig.
Who spoke today? Cuadrilla’s traffic witness, Johnny Ojeil, of Arup, defended the proposed route for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) to the Roseacre Wood fracking site. He was questioned by the inquiry inspector, Wendy McKay, barristers for Lancashire County Council and Roseacre residents, and Cllr Peter Collins for Newton-with-Clifton […]
No reason to refuse Roseacre appeal on traffic, says Cuadrilla Cuadrilla told the public inquiry into its fracking plans in Lancashire that lorries traveling to the Roseacre Wood site would not make the roads unsafe.
The inquiry into Cuadrilla’s fracking plans for Lancashire goes into week 2 tomorrow morning (Tuesday 15th February), starting with more evidence from the company’s witnesses on the impacts on landscape and traffic.
Cuadrilla to appeal against Lancashire fracking refusals; “blatant disregard for local people”, say campaigners
As expected, Cuadrilla is to appeal against the refusal of its two applications to frack in the Fylde area of Lancashire. Campaigners said the appeals disregarded local democracy and would put further pressure on residents.
Residents opposed to Cuadrilla’s application to frack at Preston New Road in Lancashire have complained that the county council’s planning officer had undermined the scale of objections.
