Council faces bill of £330k for costs in fracking battle

Lancashire County Council will face a bill for costs in excess of £330,000 County Hall is facing a bill of more than �300,000 in legal feesover the planning battle for two bids to frack on the Fylde. A spokesman confirmed Cuadrilla has been granted costs relating to the council’s refusal of permission to install a monitoring array near the Preston New Road site. But the total could rise further depending on the final outcome of the application to frack at the Roseacre site. If communities minister Sajid Javid decides that a new traffic management plan can be put together to make the rural roads near Roseacre safe and allows Cuadrilla’s appeal, then that total could rise further.
