Egdon Resources plc (AIM:EDR) announces that the North Lincolnshire County Council’s Planning Committee has today again refused planning consent for the development of the Wressle Oil Field at Lodge Farm, Wressle, North Lincolnshire.
Mark Abbott Managing Director of Egdon Resources plc, said:
“We are very disappointed by the decision of the Committee that again goes against the positive recommendation of their Planning Officer which was determined after an extensive and thorough review of our proposals which included more detailed information to address the specific concerns outlined by North Lincolnshire Council in their refusal of the original application on 11 January 2017.
Our business has been operating exploration and production sites in a safe and environmentally sensitive manner across the region for many years, engaging with communities, employing local people and investing in the local supply chain.
We will now take forward our appeal against the original 11 January 2017 determination which is due to be heard in November 2017.”
