Newly elected MP, Lee Rowley, spent part of today knocking on doors in Marsh Lane to discuss the planning application for exploratory drilling which has recently submitted nearby.
Lee, who is now three weeks into being the MP for North East Derbyshire, spent time with residents on Main Road, Lightwood Road and Warren Crescent, to discuss the application at Bramleymoor Lane which could lead to full-scale fracking in the future in our area.
"Local residents have been clear to me today that they don't want this exploratory drilling near the village", said Lee. "At the recent election I committed, if elected, to fighting the Bramleymoor Lane application and that is exactly what I intend to do. I'll keep talking to residents whenever I can and will support the local community in the upcoming planning application."
