North Lincolnshire council are going to be kept busy with O&G applications for some time to come. In my opinion, once the ludicrous objections constituting this current council fiasco regarding Wressle have been put to bed, a precedent will have been set which will prove to be to the advantage of the industry in the area with it's future E&P applications. Every cloud.....
Seems to me that this twin track approach is a sensible way forward, I guess the next interesting point will be whether the government decides to take the decision back to the centre. It really would serve the County right if they were landed with the legal costs of an appeal. Perhaps the new application gives them a way out, they can approve the new application knowing that they stand no chance at appeal, thus saving face, and the danger of costs.
Although I think it is a smart move to cascade events, I imagine that the North Lincs council will shuffle one into the other i.e. come back with since a new planning request has been submitted, they will make the appeal dependent upon the outcome of the PP. Shuffling is an acknowledged official way of losing the impact of something.
