We have received the devastating news that Angus Energy have been granted their appeal. This comes after West Sussex County Council Planning Committee refused Angus Energy’s application to extract drilling fluids and conduct an extended well test at Lower Stumble, Balcombe a UNANIMOUS VOTE.

The Planning Committee decided that Angus Energy’s application did not meet the necessary criteria of exceptional circumstances and being in the public interest to permit a major development in a protected place, in this case the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Angus submitted an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate in February 2022.
