Lee Rowley Acts

Lee Rowley is the recently elected Conservative Member of Parliament for North East Derbyshire. Taking the seat from Labour.

He has made a 15 page submission to the Derbyshire County Council opposing a planning application related to fracking as submitted by INEOS for the operation of a Vertical Hydrocarbon Exploratory Core Well to be situated on land adjacent to Bramleymoor Lane, near Marsh Lane in his constiituency. His submission can be found via this link

Although my own submission (see here) against the proposal by INEOS tended to stress different considerations, Lee Rowley's submission from his own perspective is well presented with 86 footnotes providing key supportive references. Its substantial nature indicates that he has drawn his case from professional sources - and with their help.  Perhaps it gives hope that the Conservative controlled County Council will reject the application from INEOS. Although this would only be the first stage of efforts to block the INEOS proposal.

On the issue concerned, click here for my earlier open letter on the matter to Lee Rowley. He is fully aware of it.
