Officers have recommended that Cuadrilla’s bid to frack for shale gas at Preston New Road, Little Plumpton, be approved.

But they have said that a second application to drill at Roseacre Wood near Elswick be refused.

Next Tuesday Lancashire County Councillors will begin the process of deciding on the two applications.

The three-day meeting will hear from energy firm Caudrilla, who have submitted the applications, and dozens of others including anti-fracking campaigners and local landowners.
