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.” 


Bill Cash MP opposes proposals for methane gas exploration in Tittensor

Press release 01/12/09

In response to Greenpark Energy’s planning application for methane gas exploration in Tittensor, Bill Cash MP said
 
“I support my constituents in their objections to these proposals.”
 
“It is not clear how many sites are proposed in addition to the exploration at Groundslow Farm and Knowl Wall Farm. Will there be more at Spotacre, Hilderstone and close to Swynnerton? The County Council needs to provide guidance on this.
 
“The applications often do not even seem to reflect the local conditions, the proposed site is close to local properties, the noise levels are based on an inaccurate assessment, the drilling rig appears to be inside the recommended 250m zone from dwelling properties and if methane gas is discovered, it is not clear where the exit pipeline will run.”
 
“Furthermore, there is no clarity on whether alternative sites have been considered along the extensive underlying shale bed in the local area. Winghouse Lane, where there have already been several road traffic accidents this year, is not built to take wide farm vehicles, commuter traffic and 40 heavy goods vehicles day. It would be dangerous if heavy goods vehicles end up passing through Tittensor Village, where there is a primary school.”
 
“I have of course written to Staffordshire County Council to ask them to look into those concerns.”
