Rathlin Energy: East Riding

Question for Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities

UIN 153878, tabled on 14 April 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, what assessment he has made of the request to review the planning application from Rathlin Energy for four more wells and 20 years of oil extraction at the West Newton-A site in East Yorkshire; whether he plans to call in the project; and if he will make a statement.

Planning permission has been granted by the local council and as such the Secretary of State cannot now call-in the application. A request seeking revocation of the planning permission is currently being considered against revocation policy.

I hope you will understand that I cannot comment on the matter further, as to do so might prejudice the Secretary of State’s position.
