Cuadrilla Revised Transport Strategy

The development of a fracking site at Preston New Road near Little Plumpton is in the news regularly. Many residents will also be aware that this was only the first of two sites selected by Cuadrilla for fracking near here. The second proposed site is at Roseacre Wood, just down the road from Inskip.

Last year, after the original application to frack at Roseacre Wood had been rejected by Lancashire County Council, and after it had been rejected again by the original Planning Inspector on appeal, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government stated that even so he was still “minded” to approve fracking provided the applicants – Cuadrilla – put forward an “acceptable” transport plan.

Many members of the public in Inskip will be aware that Cuadrilla have now submitted their transport plan for approval by the latest Planning Inspector and they propose to route their Heavy Goods Vehicles down our country lanes through the middle of Inskip and right past the Inskip St. Peters School!
