A Lancashire resident is seeking a High Court hearing after he was refused permission to challenge the Communities’ Secretary, Sajid Javid, over Cuadrilla’s second shale gas site at Roseacre Wood.
A community group and an anti-fracking campaigner have lost their legal challenge against the Communities’ Secretary over the way he granted permission for fracking at a site in Lancashire.
The Communities Secretary, Sajid Javid, should not have approved Cuadrilla’s fracking plans because shale gas regulation was not good enough, the High Court heard this afternoon.
Opponents of Cuadrilla’s fracking plans near Blackpool have gathered outside the High Court in Manchester for a challenge against the Communities’ Secretary, Sajid Javid.
Opponents of plans to frack in Lancashire will be at the High Court in Manchester on Wednesday to challenge the approval of planning permission for Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road site.
Legal challenges to a ministerial ruling giving the go ahead to Cuadrilla’s fracking site at Preston New Road in Lancashire will be heard next month (March).
