In previous blogs I have raised serious concerns about Celtique Energie’s proposals for exploratory oil-drilling at Northup Copse Nature Reserve, next to The Mens at Wisborough Green. After much consultation, the Sussex Wildlife Trust have put together the following response which is being submitted to West Sussex County Council today.
We object strongly to this proposal and we urge all our members to support us by objecting too. We outline our ecological reasons for objection in our letter, not least the disturbance to the wildlife of Northup Copse Nature Reserve. There are also many other issues concerning local people, which you can see at www.no-drilling.co.uk
