CAMPAIGNING FOR the pending elections has reawakened questions about the apparent delay by the local authority in rejecting the unpopular application for the Ryedale gas development. However, it seems that Moorlands are being given more time to try to justify their proposals which they have failed to do so far.
An article in last week’s papers said that Moorlands were considering their options and we hope that they will now come to their senses and accept the only safe and rational option of siting the processing facility close to the wellhead. This would cause the least disturbance, overcome most of the current objections and gain the support of the majority of residents in Thornton Le Dale, Wilton and Ebberston.
