RECOMMENDATION That application MO/2016/1848 be approved.
Conditions: 1. The development hereby approved shall be carried out in all respects in accordance with the following plans/drawings:
Drawing 4100 RS 01 "Extent of Road Condition Survey Condition 20", June 2016
2. The applicant shall ensure that works do not conflict with the RideLondon event in any year and that the road surface is in the same condition as when initially surveyed - or improved upon â€“ when this event takes place. No repairs should be at any interim stage - all will need to be permanently reinstated. Such repairs should have been completed one week before the event at the latest in order to allow a Surrey re-inspection of any repairs made pre event. The road should also be clear of any site-related detritus.
Reasons: 1. To ensure the permission is implemented in accordance with the terms of the application and to enable the County Planning Authority to exercise planning control over the development pursuant to Surrey Minerals Plan 2011 Policy MC14 2. To ensure the development should not prejudice highway safety nor cause inconvenience to other highway users in accordance with Surrey Minerals Plan 2011 Policy MC15.
No objection is raised by Mole Valley District Council, the County Highway Authority or the National Trust. Leith Hill Action Group have commented that whilst they have no objection to the Method Statement they are concerned that there may be a presumption that no damage would occur from the proposal rather than the approach that there will be damage from HGVs. 12 letters of representation have been received raising concerns with regards to the principle of the development and the information provided.
Officers, having reviewed the submitted Method Statement are satisfied that the Method Statement provides the information required for Condition 20(ii) and also sets out information on how to minimise damage to the sunken lanes.
Brockham no doubt will be first - every indication that they have seen hydrocarbons in the Kimmeridge - no doubt Mr Lenigas will expand on that. Holmwood - hints are that they might drill this earlier than I expect at least but I would still imagine they will wait until after the leaves have dropped this Autumn. Wressle planning - we should see the application soon on the North Lincs website and get an idea when it will be heard. Interims coming up in early April? as well. Then of course the PVR Druid drill in June - that really should get the SP moving. And still the conundrum for prospective farm in partners - get the deal done now or wait until after the drill?
I am afraid the Wressle planning decision last month has provided us with a bit of a pregnant pause but every day waiting is a day nearer to more news. Likely to come all at once as usual....
Now planning to drill a further two wildcat drills in the Bay du Nord this summer. It would be hard to imagine that they will not drill in the porcupine eventually once the seismic is in and prospects located.
Missed this ... http://bbc.in/2kaTGIQ interesting thoughts from the locals on democracy - if you don't like the result challenge it. Mmmm.... Brexit? Trump??? Holmwood?
Also rumours of placing at UKOG which kind of ties in with some comments on the interview above as well as recent ANGS farm in.. UKOG are paying 60% of the costs now up to £1.8m and if a drill is actually planned sooner than we think then (I.e. this spring) then they will need some cash....
Any delay caused by the protestors is now water off a ducks back to EOG as it doesn't cost them anything and I would assume a healthy charge out rate for their operatorship is covering a lot of our overheads.....
Yes - this is the first stage of the security fence issue and unlikely to be challenged. The second stage involves the additional height and the 12 month in situe requirement. These are all just meeting the conditions set down by the council when approval was granted for the drill to go ahead. They can certainly delay the drill by asking for more but they cannot refuse permission continuously. No problems envisaged...
Sorry - should have checked my facts first ... the Gov figures are for the whole field at Whisby and EOG only has a 65% share in well 4. It seems Blackland park drilled a sixth well which has resulted in the increased production. Oh Well! pun intended....
