A government department has refused to release reports by planning inspectors on two public inquiries into shale gas schemes in England.
The new Conservative MP for the Rother Valley in south Yorkshire is calling on the government to extend its moratorium on fracking to include drilling for shale gas.
Decisions on shale gas schemes at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire and Woodsetts in South Yorkshire will be issued within the next three months, the Planning Inspectorate has announced.
The shale gas company, Ineos, has installed new protest injunction notices at its proposed exploration site at Woodsetts in south Yorkshire.
Ineos has told residents in south Yorkshire that the government’s fracking moratorium announced earlier this month does not affect its shale gas plans for the village of Harthill.
Ineos is proposing six weeks of road closures around its shale gas exploration site near the village of Harthill in south Yorkshire, a new document has revealed.
The inquiry into Ineos shale gas proposals continues to hear about planning issues today..
New proposals by Ineos have emerged for a 3m high noise barrier running for more than 100m alongside its site earmarked for shale gas exploration in the south Yorkshire green belt.
Residents in the south Yorkshire village of Harthill have failed to overturn planning permission for an Ineos shale gas well near their homes.
Cyclists take to the road tomorrow (Saturday 22 September 2018) for a ride that tours five current and proposed shale gas sites in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire.
