Our application to the Planning Inspectorate

Halite Energy Group worked hard to address concerns raised by residents and the relevant local authorities by reviewing previous unsuccessful proposals for a gas storage facility at Preesall by predecessor, Canatxx. These concerns have centred around geology, risk, safety and impact on the environment.

As part of the application, Halite conducted a wide-ranging consultation exercise with the local community and a number of statutory and non-statutory consultees. Feedback from this process helped shape the application.

Following the consultation, Halite has successfully come to agreement with a wide range of local and national bodies. 44 Statements of Common Ground have been reached with organisations such as Lancashire County Council, Wyre Council, the Health & Safety Executive, the RSPB, the Environment Agency and Natural England who have stated that they have no concerns about important elements of our proposals including geology and safety.
