UPDATE – NOTES FROM THIS MEETING ARE AVAILABLE BY CLICKING ON THE LINK BELOW:-
Last night (28 August) the Angus Energy Community Liaison Group met to receive information from the oil company about their future plans for Lower Stumble. In the next few weeks the company are planning to submit a planning application to West Sussex County Council to carry out an extended well test for a period of two/three years. This process will involve removing excess water that was found there before, and then, theoretically, pumping oil out and assessing the field’s commercial viability. Balcombe Parish Council will be closely reviewing the application when it comes in and will keep residents informed at each stage.
