On 3rd September 2018, following a previous hearing in private on 31st August 2018, Mr Justice Morgan granted IGas an interim injunction for the following sites: Tinker Lane, Springs Road Misson and Ellesmere Port.
Of particular interest to the Tinker lane CLG and the local communities that we represent are the definitions and restrictions imposed upon the Tinker Lane exploratory borehole site. The full interim injunction can be viewed on the IGas website.
The order effectively prohibits trespass onto the Tinker lane site, prohibits activity that impedes access on or off the site, prohibits obstruction on the access road roads to and from the site as detailed on Drawing TL6/1 in the Planning Application. (effectively north (B6045) and south access (A634) from the A1, A634 Retford road to the site). The order threatens that a miscreant would be in contempt of court with consequences of imprisonment fines or assets seizure. Certain organisations, groups and individuals have been identified as “believed to oppose the Claimants’ (IGas) activity at the sites” in the Schedule 16.
