Wressle Development Public Inquiry Concluded

8 November 2019

Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) is pleased to provide an update on the Wressle Development Public Inquiry.

The Wressle Development Public Inquiry concluded yesterday, having commenced on 5 November 2019 in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire.  The inquiry lasted just three days, including a site visit, instead of the planned six days.  As previously announced North Lincolnshire Council presented no evidence against the appeal. An application for costs has also been submitted.

With a general election underway and resultant Planning Inspectorate purdah we expect a verdict on our appeal after 12 December 2019 but probably before the end of the year.

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

“We presented a very strong case, supported by detailed evidence and agree with the conclusions of the Council’s own professional planning officer. This was reinforced by an expert third party review undertaken on behalf of the Council, who recommended our revised application for approval ahead of the November 2018 decision.”
