The Traffic and Transport Management Plan commissioned by Horse Hill Developments Ltd (HHDL) in support of its planning permission for 20 years of oil production at Horse Hill poses a real risk to other road users and if approved, threatens disturbance for local residents – for 20 years.
Under the plan – which is currently out for consultation – there would be no restriction on HGV permitted hours while oil production was going on – that’s 20 years of the planning permission.
UK Oil & Gas Plc (UKOG) is holding a public engagement event on Monday 16th December 2019 to tell residents about the planning applications it intends to submit to the Isle of Wight Council in the new year.
The Weald Action Group has objected to the application by Horse Hill Developments Ltd (HHDL) to vary its permit for the Horse Hill oil production site in Surrey.
HHDL recently obtained planning permission allowing them to drill and test four new oil wells, drill a water reinjection well, and produce and store oil at the site (a decision that a local resident is seeking leave to challenge in a Judicial Review, with our support). But the operations must also be approved by the Environment Agency.
“We need to act now – urgently – to bring greenhouse emissions down to net zero. Not by 2050 but as fast as humanly possible, in fact faster, in order to prevent catastrophic and irreversible changes to our climate that are going to result in devastating impacts on our planet and cause incalculable suffering and loss of life.Continue reading “Dr Emily Grossman at Horse Hill”
Following the shocking decision by Surrey County Council to approve four new oil wells at Horse Hill (bringing the total to six) – and commercial oil production for more than 20 years – there will be a demonstration at Horse Hill on Saturday 26th October.
A collaboration of climate campaign groups, Horse Hill Rebel Alliance, invites you to join this legal, peaceful protest to highlight the dangers of more oil drilling in a time of climate chaos.
