Cuadrilla Announce Two New Fracking Sites in Lancashire

It is clear that Fylde are already on the ball with their campaign and support from local residents, consultation will be well prepared for in light of this new announcement.

Cuadrilla Resources is to apply for permission to drill at a site at Roseacre Wood, near Wharles and at a site near the A583 at Little Plumpton.

The company wants to explore each site to see if natural gas trapped in the shale rock layers 6,000ft below the surface can be got out economically.

Cuadrilla has promised full consultation with the people living in both areas and has organised meetings with the community at two locations tonight, together with further consultations throughout the process.

It said with environmental impact assessments to be carried out on each site, plus up to nine permits to be cleared with the environment agency, and planning permission to be granted by Lancashire County Council, the process is likely to take many months.
