Major Minerals Application - Lodge Farm, Clapp Gate, Appleby, DN15 0DB, MIN/2016/810

We the undersigned respectfully request that North Lincolnshire Council extend the consultation period to ensure this ‘Major Mineral Application’ is given the consideration it deserves. Many parish councils will not have the chance to respond to this as they will not have met between the application going in and the consultation period ending, furthermore, some parish councils close over the summer and as such will miss their chance to respond.

Given the long term plans for this site we feel it is imperative that all parish councils are given the opportunity to exercise their duty of care towards their communities and have a full understanding of all the implications associated with this complicated petrochemical application.

We believe that the public have a right to know more about this application and how it will impact on them and their daily lives, it would appear that this is not a straightforward conventional oil well, but will require stimulation through means of Radial Drilling Proppant Squeeze and/or Acidification. We believe the public have a right to know more detailed information about the differences in production methods, armed with this knowledge they can then make their own informed decision whether to support the application or not.

We must also highlight that a second planning application on the same site ( North Lincolnshire Council PA/2016/808) has now gone live, given the vast amount of technical data involved we ask for an extension of the consultation period so residents and public servants have adequate time to read and understand the documents.

In addition, a third active consultation period is underway in relation to the site, this time by the Environment Agency. Egdon Resources have applied for changes to their waste permits. We do not believe that at this time residents and neighbouring communities fully understand the nature and impact this development will have, and ask for more time which will enable them digest and understand the documents.

    I live 1 mile for Horsehill where acidization was performed earlier in 2016. I breathed the air whilst jogging past site and suffered medical issues for the following 1 - 2 months. I believe this process is severely detrimental to the environment and to human and animal health.

    This is such a major issue with potentially massive implications for the health, safety and well-being of local residents. It is therefore vital that everyone who might be affected has the opportunity to become informed about these implications.

    The practice of giving fracking many different, scientific-sounding names is distasteful. The government, with the help of Tory local councils, is pushing through applications without giving local people time to get up to speed on what is involved. This is poor practice and I strongly oppose it.
