Egdon will now appeal the council's original decision to reject the application

Egdon Resources Plc (LON:EDR) and its partners vowed to press ahead with an appeal as North Lincolnshire County Council again rejected the application to develop the onshore Wressle field.

Mark Abbott, Egdon’s managing director, said:  "We are very disappointed by the decision of the Committee that again goes against the positive recommendation of their Planning Officer which was determined after an extensive and thorough review of our proposals which included more detailed information to address the specific concerns outlined by North Lincolnshire Council in their refusal of the original application on 11 January 2017.

“Our business has been operating exploration and production sites in a safe and environmentally sensitive manner across the region for many years, engaging with communities, employing local people and investing in the local supply chain.

“We will now take forward our appeal against the original 11 January 2017 determination which is due to be heard in November 2017."

Egdon Resources is the operator and owns 25%. Europa Oil & Gas (LON:EOG) owns 30%, Celtique Energie 30% and Union Jack Oil (LON:UJO) 15%.
