Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) announces that it will appeal the decision of North Lincolnshire Council’s Planning Committee of 3 July 2017 to refuse planning consent for a second time for the development of the Wressle Oil Field at Lodge Farm, Wressle, North Lincolnshire (Application PA/2017/696).
Notices advertising our intent to appeal will be displayed in the local parishes and published in the local paper over the coming week in accordance with planning law and an appeal will be submitted without delay shortly afterwards.
Egdon will request the Planning Inspectorate to co-join this new appeal with the appeal against the refusal of planning permission of 11 January 2017. The first appeal is currently scheduled for early November 2017.
Egdon can also advise that it will separately appeal the decision of the 3 July 2017 meeting to refuse application PA/2017/268 which requested a twelve month extension to the existing planning consent for the site.
Mark Abbott Managing Director of Egdon Resources plc, said:
“We are compelled to bring forward appeals against both of the decisions of North Lincolnshire Council’s special Planning Committee meeting of 3 July 2017. Following a thorough and detailed consultation and evaluation, both applications were recommended for approval by the Council’s Head of Development Management and Building Control and had support from the key statutory and regulatory consultees. In addition the environmental permit for the proposed Wressle development has been issued by the Environment Agency since the original decision in January of this year. We now look forward to presenting our case at the forthcoming public inquiry.”
