Cuadrilla appeals

I know that some residents have raised the issue of appeals by Cuadrilla at sites around Preston and Roseacre and Wharles in Lancashire.
Following the public inquiry, the planning inspector submitted her report to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government for his consideration on 4 July. I can assure you that very careful consideration will be given to the Inspector's report and the wide range of material considerations raised in these cases. This will include the decision of the local authority and the material considerations put forward at the time of the application. A decision will be issued on or before 6 October 2016.
