Bassetlaw District Council is a statutory consultee to the Misson exploratory drilling application (in the end it’s Notts County Council who make the decision).
The council have decided that their response will be made by councillors on their planning committee. This is an incredible opportunity. However, a planning officer at the council has recommended that they should provide NO OBJECTION to the application (subject to appropriate conditions & Environmental Health observations). BUT…it’s councillors on the planning committee who will make the final decision. BUT this isn’t a good start…
If you live in Bassetlaw, we URGE you to write to and phone the councillors on the planning committee, as well as your all borough councillors, to demand that they DO OBJECT to the application. Points that they can object on can be found on our website.
There will be a demonstration outside their meeting next Wednesday 16th December. The demo will start at 6pm at Worksop Town Hall, Potter Street, Worksop, S80 2AH. Facebook event.
