Preston New Road Action Group and individual campaigner, Gayzer Frackman, yesterday (16th of March) saw the conclusion of their legal review against the Secretary of State. The review was in reference to Sajid Javid MP’s overturning of Lancashire County Council’s planning refusal for Cuadrilla’s fracking appeal.

The judgement, delivered by The Honourable Mr Justice Dove, is expected within weeks.

Pat Davies, Chair of Preston New Road stated:

“We are grateful to our legal team for their hard work and case presentation. After three years, the community of Preston New Road has suffered enough. Our community said no, Lancashire County Council development committee said no and we look forward to the outcome of the hearing. We place our trust in justice being restored and this application being quashed.”
