ANNA’S ROAD SITE, WESTBY
Cuadrilla has decided not to progress the Anna’s Road site near Westby into planning. We looked at a number of possible locations and decided to rule out Anna’s Road so we can focus on other sites, which we believe show greater potential. The background to this decision includes technical constraints related to wintering birds.
A works programme has been completed to restore the exploration site at Anna’s Road. Site restoration plans for Anna’s Road were approved by Lancashire County Council at a planning Committee hearing in 2014. The exploration well has been plugged with cement and restored to its former green field status.
