Lancashire councillors reject second Cuadrilla fracking application


 

Lancashire County Council has voted to reject an application by Cuadrilla to frack at its Preston New Road site. The decision, announced on Monday 29 June, follows the committee’s earlier decision to similarly reject the company’s plans for fracking at Roseacre Wood. County councillor Marcus Johnstone, cabinet member for environment, planning and cultural services, said: “Each member of the committee has ultimately cast their vote based on the evidence they have heard and whether they think the proposal is acceptable in planning terms, and to the people they represent.” Cuadrilla has said that it will consider appealing the decision.
