Aurora Energy Resources have, on 4th January 2018, put in a “scoping request” for opinion to Lancashire County Council which indicates their plans for exploratory drilling/fracking on Altcar Moss. This will NOT be consulted upon. LCC have 5 weeks to provide an opinion, unless a longer period is agreed with the applicant.
The precise location, just outside the Conservation Area, can be seen here:
We understand, though not yet confirmed to residents, that Aurora is planning their “public engagement” exercise at Haskayne Village Hall on Saturday 17th February. Full details will appear here when they have notified residents of their intentions, hopefully this will be in good time for residents to make arrangements to attend.
We are organising a public meeting which will be advertised here shortly.
