Provision of information when granting planning permission for shale gas applications

The Director of Planning at the DCLG has written to the Chief Planning Officer at Mineral Planning Authorities in England to request that Mineral Planning Authorities provide certain information to the Department for Energy and Climate Change and the applicant when granting planning permission for relevant shale gas or oil development.

This request is to support implementation of the provisions in the Infrastructure Act 2015. The information is sought in respect of any relevant planning permissions granted from the date of the letter, and is to support decision making under the Petroleum Licencing regime. Details are set out in the annex attached to the letter. The information is sought in the form of a short notice, and it is anticipated will be readily available through the process of determining the relevant application.
