At a Planning Board meeting today RMBC refused to approve plans by INEOS to undertake exploratory drilling in Woodsetts.
Members of the Woodsetts Against Fracking group spoke eloquently when presenting their reasons why INEOS’s application should be refused and Borough Cllr’s Jepson and Ireland also spoke to highlight the effects of drilling and heavy truck movements on local residents and damage to the local ecology.
