Bill Cash MP takes up methane gas exploration objections with Staffordshire County Council

Press release 14/12/09

In response to Greenpark Energy’s planning application for methane gas exploration in Tittensor, and recent correspondence with Staffordshire County Council, Bill Cash MP said:
 
“I strongly support my constituents in their objections to these proposals and have taken up those concerns with Staffordshire County Council. It has become clear that full planning applications have already been submitted for the drilling of boreholes for methane gas exploration and subsequent production at Groundslow Farm and Knowl Wall Farm.
 
“Furthermore, it has come to light that pre-application discussions have taken place for a site at Spot Grange near Hilderstone and another site at Blakelow near Swynnerton, near to the M6 motorway.
 
“I ask that if any of my constituents within the affected areas have concerns over those applications, I would be grateful if they would please get in contact with me and I will then take those objections up with Staffordshire County Council.”
