Portside North Fracking Inquiry

Jackie Copley, Planning Manager for CPRE Lancashire was commissioned by Frack Free Ellesmere Port and Upton, the Rule 6 Party, to represent opposition to a shale exploration application.  The proposal site is situated on Portside North in Ellesmere Port.  Although an urban location, it was considered as a matter in-directly relevant to CPRE in that should the use was allowed, the employment use would be displaced elsewhere and probably require greenfields in countryside to be allocated instead.

CPRE Lancashire is delighted to learn that the Secretary of State has concluded that there are no material considerations which indicate that the proposal by Cuadrilla should be determined other than in accordance with the development plan. It was therefore concluded that the appeal should be dismissed, and planning permission refused.
