The plans are requesting permission to frack, drill and test the flow of gas from up to four wells at Preston New Road.
The company announced its plans in February to apply for permission here and another site at Roseacre Wood. Cuadrilla said that The Preston New Road planning application and an Environmental Statement will be available to the public once it is validated not approved by the council,which should be expected in the next two weeks.
After this the county council will launch a formal consultation process for the public to comment on plans.
