Have your say

Cuadrilla has submitted a planning application to Lancashire County Council for its proposed Preston New Road shale gas exploration site.

The proposal covers the works required to drill, hydraulically fracture and test the flow of gas from up to four exploration wells on the site.

A Cuadrilla spokesman said a detailed environmental statement (ES), resulting from the environmental impact assessment produced by consultants at Arup, had been submitted with the planning application.
