CR1 The Coal Authority previously commented on this submission in a response in 2022. We noted that the application was accompanied by Coal Mining Risk Assessment (CMRA) (D., revision A (Environmental Statement – Volume III) prepared for the project by WSP UK Limited. Having carried out a review of the available information, the Report authors stated that only some sections of the pipeline corridor are affected by former coal mining activity. The report authors made recommendations for the pipeline routing to avoid these areas where possible and in the event that the pipeline cannot avoid the areas, that intrusive ground investigations are required in order to confirm the ground conditions present and inform any remedial measures required to mitigate the risk posed to the pipeline and associated infrastructure. We recommended that the measures proposed within the submitted Coal Mining Risk Assessment prepared by WSP UK Limited to address the risks posed to the development by past coal mining activity are included as requirements of any Order granted for the project. We note the changes now proposed on the scheme. In respect of the areas were changes are proposed and past coal mining features are recorded to be present this only appears to relate to area 41. We would expect that in this area further consideration will be given to the potential risks posed by past coal mining activity in respect of the changes made as part of the recommendations within the Coal Mining Risk Assessment, which should be included as requirements of any DCO granted.
