INEOS Shale win Bramleymoor Lane planning appeal
16 August 2018
Ken Cronin, Chief Executive of UK Onshore Oil and Gas (UKOOG), said:
"We welcome the decision today by the Planning Inspector to grant Ineos planning permission for an exploration site at Bramleymoor Lane. This follows a successful appeal that saw thorough representation on both sides of the debate. Ultimately, the Inspector has concluded that she has given substantial weight to the potential to improve resources for energy supplies, something we strongly agree is a nationally important priority.
A planning appeal is part of the overall planning process in the UK and is not unique to onshore oil and gas. UKOOG notes that according to DCLG databases since 2000 57% of refusals for onshore wind were appealed and in the year 2016/17, 11,789 s78 planning appeals were received."
