Oil Drilling Permit – Godshill Next?


THERE ARE ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT for members of the public to respond to the Environment Agency‘s consultation on the application from UK Oil & Gas plc for an environmental permit to explore and appraise hydrocarbon minerals on land at Arreton.
This is very important to Godshill because should they be successful in gaining permission for drilling and oil extraction in Arreton, their next target is the fields just south west of our village, within site of the church. SO PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AND SUPPORT ARRETON.
The deadline for submitting comments is Friday 9th July.
In addition, a local campaign (Don’t Drill The Wight) have provided some useful information and guidance on their website:
Many thanks to our new IoW Councillor, Suzie Ellis for the timely reminder of this. Suzie will, of course, be submitting her own response before the deadline on Friday 9th July. PLEASE ADD YOUR RESPONSE AS WELL.
