Fracking Company IGas Threaten 2 Sites In Nottinghamshire
Fracking company IGas Energy Ltd have submitted another planning application to explore for shale gas in Nottinghamshire. They now have 2 live planning applications for sites at Tinkers Lane near Blyth, and Springs Road near Misson. The Misson site also has a live EA Mining Waste Permit Application.
Both of these applications stop short of full scale hydraulic fracturing. This tactic is increasingly common as fracking companies attempt to drill wells and make progress without alarming planners and residents. It is clear however that if these wells are drilled it is much more likely that farcking will take place.
Frack Free Nottinghamshire have produced objection guidance for both sites. If these applications are approved, it may be harder for the Council to reject future fracking applications. This could result in hundreds of fracking wells across Bassetlaw, South Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and the East Midlands.
