Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) is pleased to advise that further to the announcement of 25 January 2022, it has submitted an appeal against the refusal of planning permission by Lincolnshire County Council for a side-track drilling operation, associated testing and long-term oil production at the Biscathorpe site (the “Appeal”), held under licence PEDL253.
Egdon is operator of PEDL253 and holds a 35.8% interest in the licence.
The appeal documentation was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate (“PINS”) on 12 April 2022. The appeal will now be validated by PINS before an Inspector is appointed and a timetable is defined. The expectation is that the appeal will be decided under the written representations procedure, a process where PINS will consider written evidence from the appellant, the local planning authority and anyone else who has an interest in the appeal.
