EA Consultation for Drilling Permit for Isle of Wight – Please Comment

UKOG has applied to the Environment Agency for a drilling permit, despite no decision made yet by the Isle of Wight Planning Committee. We believe this to be a deliberate attempt to influence the decision of the application if the EA grants the permit in advance.

The Team of the Don’t Drill The Wight Campaign are urging communities to respond to the consultation following the EA Guidelines. We are also writing to Bob Seely MP to ask him to respond in objection to the permit.
Please support us by heading to our website at https://www.dontdrillthewight.co.uk/  to follow simple instructions to respond and read ideas for relevant comments to be written in your own words.Read our Newsletter for more details by clicking the image above
