A further attempt was announced today to overturn ministerial decisions on fracking in Lancashire.
A community group and a resident have applied to the High Court to challenge decisions by the Local Government Secretary, Sajid Javid, over Cuadrilla’s plans to frack near Blackpool.
Cuadrilla’s plans to frack at Roseacre Wood are neither safe, sustainable nor supported, a parish councillor told politicians yesterday.

Resident challenges minister’s decision to reopen inquiry on Cuadrilla’s Roseacre Wood fracking plans
A man who lives 500m from Cuadrilla’s proposed shale gas site at Roseacre Wood in Lancashire has begun a legal challenge to the government.
The shale gas company, Cuadrilla, has announced a loss of $17.671m for the 12 months ending 31 December 2015, up from $11.568m on the previous year.
Last week’s decision by a government minister to reopen the planning inquiry into one of Cuadrilla’s fracking sites in Lancashire has made local people more determined to fight it, a spokesperson for the community has told DrillOrDrop.
