Celtique Energy to appeal Kirdford & Wisborough Green decision

Very concerning news this evening for our friends at Kirdford and Wisborough Green, as Celtique Energie have now stated they will appeal the decision made by WSCC to refuse the planning application there. QUOTE (abstract): Friends of the Earth South East campaigner Brenda Pollack said: “This appeal will cast a dark shadow over the lives of local residents who have made it clear that they don’t want fracking to take place in their backyard.

“There were clear and sound reasons to refuse this application, less than 500 metres from the South Downs national park – not least the impacts of extra traffic on a conservation area.

“The Planning Inspectorate must uphold the council’s decision and reject Celtique Energie’s appeal.”
