CR2 We previously made comments on the Coal Mining Risk Assessment, included within the Environmental Statement and prepared for the project by WSP UK. This Risk Assessment concluded that there are specific areas of the pipeline impacted by former coal mining activity. The report authors recommended that the pipeline routing avoids these areas where possible. WSP note that in the event that the pipeline cannot avoid the areas, intrusive ground investigations will be 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 from coal mining features. The 2023 ES Addendum Change Request 2 document states that that is are changes to the ground/land conditions assessment. On this basis we assume that the changes proposed to the project have been considered in cognisance of the recommendations by WSP and that any works required to investigate and mitigate risks posed by coal mining features will be carried out. It is recommended that the measures proposed within the submitted Coal Mining Risk Assessment prepared by WSP UK Limited to address risks posed to the development by past coal mining activity are included as requirements of any Order granted for the project.
