Third Energy fracking bid approved
North Yorkshire County Council considered a bid by Third Energy to extract shale gas at a site near Kirby Misperton in Ryedale.
Hundreds of protestors had attended a meeting in Northallerton to voice anger at the project, that was previously recommended for approval.
Councillors on the county council’s planning committee voted 7-4 in favour.
This allows Third Energy to fracture the KM8 well and evaluate the potential of the shale resource to produce gas commercially.
