Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No


A report was presented on a proposal to visit the revised access routes with regard to the proposed Roseacre Wood exploration well site.


The Committee was informed that a report detailing the planning and highways implications of the revised access routes including the results of the consultation exercise, would be reported to the next meeting of the Development Control Committee on 24th January 2018. The conclusions of the Committee after considering that report would form the basis of any evidence presented by the County Council to the reopened public inquiry.


The Development Management Officer advised that a site visit would provide the Committee with a clearer understanding of revised access routes. It was therefore proposed that the Committee should visit the site and the proposed access roads prior to considering the proposal at the next meeting on the 24 January, 2018.


Resolved: That the Development Control Committee visit the site and the proposed access routes prior to considering the proposal at the next meeting on the 24 January 2018.
