Council grants planning permission to Baird gas project

The Baird Gas Storage Project, a joint venture between gas storage provider Centrica Storage and UK oil and gas company Perenco, has been granted onshore planning permission by North Norfolk District Council.

The Bacton-based project, which will help secure future energy supplies by storing gas 86km off the north Norfolk coast, has been given planning consent for the onshore gas reception terminal and pipeline landfall elements of the project.
