IGas More Delays for Fracking Plans in Nottinghamshire
IGas’s plan to explore for shale gas at a site at Misson in north Nottinghamshire now looks unlikely to be decided next month. Councillors had been expected to decide by the end of July on the application for two exploratory boreholes at a former Cold War missile site off Springs Road. But Nottinghamshire County Council said it would be writing to IGas to ask for more information and a further delay is expected.
Frack Free Nottinghamshire have produced objection guidance for both of the sites that IGas is targeting. 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.
