At the October Parish Council meeting, tarvinonline reported that there was an unusually large turn-out by members of the public in response to the opportunity to provide questions to iGas and Tesla regarding their current activities in and around Tarvin.
Tarvin Parish Council has kindly provided the Notes from that meeting which include the questions raised, and the answers provided at that meeting. There are still a number of questions to be answered, watch this space.
The topics covered included:
- Communications: The main question was why had the seismic survey not been better published in the area? They, IGas and Tesla, agreed that they could have done more and would be prepared to attend an open day if requested in due course.
- Seismic Survey: It was explained that the seismic survey provided a 3D view of sub-surface details of the local geology. The main issues included how it was carried out, how dangerous are the charges, are they likely to damage property, and, what compensation is available for any such damage.
- Fracking: The seismic survey will identify areas where gas exists, and could eventually lead to "Fracking" to extract it. In the event, any fracking application will be subject to approval through the Planning system, and may have conditions imposed on it before going ahead.
