The Weald Action Group has submitted a response to the Environment Agency’s consultation on the application by Horse Hill Developments Ltd to vary the environmental permit for their Horse Hill well site at Horse Hill, near Horley in Surrey.
In summary, we do not agree with the Environment Agency’s draft decision for the following reasons:
UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) has announced it will not appeal against the refusal of planning permission for exploration near the village of Arreton on the Isle of Wight.
The Isle of Wight Council unanimously refused the application in October 2021. This followed years of dedicated campaigning by Don’t Drill the Wight, a non- party political group of like-minded individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds, professions and political affiliations, who are opposed to the development of new onshore exploration and extraction sites for oil and gas.
Guest speakers include SECA members Danny Lee (Petersfield Climate Action Network) and Emily Mott (Weald Action Group) as well as James Turitto (Clean Air Task Force). The session will be facilitated by Jill Sutcliffe.
