North Kelsey Planning Update

14 March 2022

Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) advises that its application to extend the existing planning permission to drill the North Kelsey-1 exploration well was refused at today’s meeting of the Lincolnshire County Council Planning Committee.

Commenting on the decision, Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon Resources plc, said:

“The decision of the Planning Committee is disappointing given the clear current need for the UK to secure further indigenous supplies of energy to reduce its reliance on imports, the compelling case presented and the positive recommendation of Lincolnshire County Council’s Planning Officer. Given this, we will bring forward an appeal against this decision without delay and will provide further updates in due course.”
