I oppose continued ramping up of oil and gas activities here in Lincolnshire until the EA has conducted much fuller and more comprehensive public engagement by way of regular face to face meetings. Areas of serious concern are: Increased HGV traffic with its impact on rural roads for all users: pedestrians, equestrians, cyclists , motor vehicles. Also the additional diesel exhaust fumes will impact on air quality along the routes. Increased venting and flaring of noxious and toxic fumes at a time when air quality in the UK has reached critical levels causing 1000s of premature deaths a year. Climate Change Imperatives: the EA should be observing its obligations at local and national level not to relentlessly permit all oil and gas expansions without much fuller public engagement.
