Plans for oil and gas well near Fernhurst village centrescrapped
Following their original 2013 plans outline (12MB PDF file), Celtique Energie's submitted a planning application (ref: SDNP/13/05896/CM) for an exploration well close to Fernhurst village centre, in Nine Acre Copse. Local opposition to the plans, expected to lead to controversial hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking' in Fernhurst, includes Frack Free Fernhurst (FFF Facebook page). Celtique's application was rejected in 2014 by the South Downs National Park authorities. Update, 12 March 2015:Plans by Celtique to appeal are abandoned.
