This consultation ran from 17 December 2013 9:30am to
28 March 2014 11:45pm
This is a consultation on an Environmental Report on DECC's proposals for further onshore oil and gas licensing in areas of Great Britain.
This consultation is being held on another website
The report identifies, describes and evaluates the likely significant effects on the environment of DECC’s proposals to invite applications for, and issue new licences, and of reasonable alternatives to that plan; and how these effects can be reduced or offset.
This report is a necessary part of a process of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA).
DECC will take consultation responses into account and will then issue a “Post-adoption statement” which will summarise how the government intends to proceed in relation to further onshore licensing.
