Angus Energy’s planning application for its illegally sidetracked well was registered on 8th March with the Surrey County Council and the documents are available on the Surrey County Council website.
The application is for the retention of the BRX4 well, the regularisation of the BRX4Z sidetrack, and the appraisal of BRX4Z using production plant and equipment within the existing site, for a temporary period of three years (part retrospective).
The application has SCC Reference 2017/0215. The application is expected to go to the 23 May Planning and Regulatory Committee. Please make your objections before then.
There is already activity on site and Surrey County Council has said: “We were expecting Angus to undertake some further works in connection with BRX2 – when our Enforcement Officer visited the site earlier in the month he was told that a further crane would be needed. We are seeking currently clarification from Angus’ representative. As you know, however, Angus do have planning permission to undertake works associated with BRX2.”
