I am writing to enquire as to which stage, relating to the above mentioned planning permission, the work that is currently being carried out at site at Grange Road (Singleton) relates to. 

For clarity, these stages are: 

1. Installation of the monitoring equipment (2 weeks).
2. First monitoring phase (72 weeks).
3. Mid-point equipment check (2 weeks).
4. Second monitoring phase (56 weeks).
5. Well abandonment (4 weeks).
6. Restoration of the site (approx.7 weeks).

I would also be grateful if you could you also please provide the dates which each phase commenced. 

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Yours faithfully, XXX 
Dear XXX Thank you for your email the contents of which are noted.

The works currently being undertaken at the Grange Road site relate to stage 5 in the list below. Following these works being completed, the site will be restored (stage 6). Stages 1 – 4 have never been undertaken at this site.

I understand that the well abandonment works have recently commenced but Cuadrilla are not required to inform the County Council of the exact date when they commence.

Yours sincerely

Jonathan
