A local councillor has informed us that there is a very real possibility that previous oil and gas concessions grantedin in Ringmer, Lewes and in other parts of east Sussex will be up for renewal in 2014.
She is monitoring the situation closely, but thinks preemptive action now to stop E.Sussex County Council in their tracks would be very usefull at this stage.This not a scare story this is actually happening.
Remember what happened that the concession was given to Cuadrilla from a previously drilled well.There have in past been exploratory wells in both Ringmer Broyle and two in Lewes itself.
Sign the petion and stop them in their fracks.

For goodness sake! Have you not read any of the local press recently or is this just another pathetic attempt to push the anti soap agenda?

On 24 Aug 2013 at 11:18pm How Balcombe was fooled wrote:

Planning permission for the US firm's test on the Balcombe estate - owned by Simon Greenwood, a great grandson of the first Lord Cowdray - was granted by West Sussex county council (WSCC) in 2010 and expires at the end of September. If Cuadrilla had waited any longer to start work it would have had to reapply, and this time round it could have expected strong opposition to a revised planning application. So why was the original one waved through? Because almost nobody knew about it. The WSCC planning officer wrote to Balcombe parish council in January 2010 drawing attention to the application, saying that if no comments were received by 18 February "it will be assumed that the parish council has no objection".
In March, after a reminder, the parish council clerk confirmed that "the matter was discussed at the last regular meeting" and there was "no objection". Shome mishtake? There is no record of any discussion" in the minutes of the Balcombe parish council meeting in February 2010. The only fleeting reference comes after a debate on an application for a carport, in a brief sentence noting that Simon Greenwood, who is a parish councillor, "mentioned" a recent application at a site off London Road. And, er, that's it. No debate, no vote and no declaration of interest from Greenwood, who stood to earn tens of thousands from Cuadrilla. WSCC then approved the application using delegated powers, precisely because of the lack of public objection. As the exploratory drilling begins, Greenwood and parish clerk Richard Greig have some explaining to do to irate villagers.
PS: Simon Greenwood's mother, Anne, was given Balcombe by the Cowdray estate as a dowry. But his cousin Lord Cowdray is on the other side of the barricades: he supports protesters at another West Sussex site, Femhurst, and recently revealed that he refused to let Cowdray land in Femhurst be used for drilling because of the environmental impact onthe environment.

This respected Geology professor is an expert on fracking and has written many pro-fracking papers but says that Cuadrilla's drilling at Balcombe is dangerous and the company incompetent!

Bl*** heck. Francis Egan can't be Cuadrilla CEO for much longer.
