INEOS refused approval to drill in Woodsetts.

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.

The full Planning Board discussion can be found here: Item 7 (1) on the R/H side of the page.

    Well done to RMBC but INEOS will appeal to the Secretary of State as they have when other councils refused them permission to drill.
