Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) is pleased to advise that on 1 February 2019 it submitted to the Planning Inspectorate an appeal against the refusal of planning consent for the development of the Wressle oil field by North Lincolnshire Council’s (the “Council”) Planning Committee on 28 November 2018.
The appeal will now be validated by the Planning Inspectorate and a bespoke timetable advised for the appeal process which will lead to a planning inquiry in due course.
Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon Resources plc, said:
“We look forward to a Planning Inspector considering at a public inquiry our appeal against the refusal in November 2018 of our revised development proposals for the Wressle oil field.
We strongly believe that the new proposals for the development of the Wressle oil field comprehensively addressed the reasons highlighted by the Planning Inspector in his dismissal of our original appeals in January 2018. This position was supported by the recommendation for approval given by the Council’s Planning Officer as reinforced by an expert third party review undertaken on behalf of the Council.”
