Cuadrilla have published their latest proposals which are to be considered at the re-opened Public Inquiry at Blackpool Football Club. The proposed time and date for this re-opening is 10.00am on Tuesday 10th April 2018.
Their proposals will impact the villages of Thistleton, Elswick, Crossmoor, Inskip, Roseacre, Catforth, Treales, and Clifton. Full details of their intentions are in the following documents.
If you wish to object to these proposals you can do so
- By writing to: Jonathan Haine, Development Management, PO Box 100, County Hall, Preston, PR1 0LD

In both cases you should quote: APP/Q2371/W/15/3134385 To Planning Application Ref: LCC/2014/0101
These objections are merely being collated by Lancashire County Council, they will be forwarded to Cuadrilla as it is their application to which you are objecting. Objections should be submitted to Lancashire County Council by 10th January 2018.
If you wish to speak at the Public Inquiry you will be allowed to do so. Public speakers will be limited to 5 minutes and the Inquiry will allocate times in the evening to accomodate people who work during the day.

Following the Secretary of State’s decision and against this background Cuadrilla appointed an independent traffic consultant who commissioned extensive traffic surveys over the summer and
autumn this year to assess possible routes to the Roseacre Wood site. Based on the conclusions of this work, Cuadrilla is now proposing to utilise three routes to provide access for HGVs between the A583 and A585 and the Roseacre Wood site.
Maps of the three proposed HGV routes are enclosed and they are:
• Green Route from A585 to the Site via B5269 Thistleton Road, Elswick High Street and Roseacre Road;
• Red Route from A585 to the Site via B5269 Thistleton Road, Elswick High Street, Lodge Lane, Preston Road and Higham Side Road and through the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) Defence High
Frequency Communications Site (DHFCS) Inskip facility;
• Blue Route from A583 to the Site via Clifton Lane, Station Road, Dagger Road, Salwick Road,
and Inskip Road and through the DHFCS facility.
The management of the three routes in order to minimise disruption and ensure safe and efficient
working will be set out in a Traffic Management Plan, in agreement with Lancashire County Council,
which will itself be subject to a planning condition.
There have been many reports regarding this diabolical decision which flies in the face of Democracy. I have included links to a few.
