Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) advises that its application to extend to December 2020, the existing planning permission to drill an exploratory conventional oil well (North Kelsey-1) on farmland off Smithfield Road, North Kelsey, Brigg, Lincolnshire was deferred at today’s meeting of the Lincolnshire County Council Planning Committee. A decision will be taken once the Planning Committee has undertaken a site visit.
Commenting on the meeting outcome, Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon Resources plc, said:
“Today’s deferral is frustrating given the strong case presented and the positive recommendation of Lincolnshire County Council’s Planning Officer in respect of the application. We will provide an update once we know when Egdon’s application will be heard at Lincolnshire County Council’s Planning Committee Meeting.”
