#FrackStopsHere Lancs decides on PNR site – gateway to fracking the UK

This is the beginning of the second day of attending the Development Control Committee meeting at LCC in Preston. Yesterday we heard a very biased report from the Planning Officer who was obviously recommending approval to Cuadrilla’s application. Vice – chair has proposed refusal this morning but they are concerned if it will sustain an appeal!

 Yesterday we heard presentations first of all from various anti-fracking people which took most of the day then the pro- fracking ones in the last section. 

This morning the county councillors considered together with representatives from the Environment Agency, HSE, Public Health England and another body who had been employed to assess potential sound levels. 

At the moment the Committee are being given pressure in a private adjournment as to the sustainability of a refusal.
