A417 Missing Link

Received 04 August 2021
From The Coal Authority


Further to the notification received from Highways England of 22 July 2021, I have checked the location plan against the information held by the Coal Authority and can confirm that the area lies outside of the defined coalfield. Accordingly, the Coal Authority has no specific comments / observations to make on this project. In the spirit of efficiency of resources and proportionality, it will not be necessary for you to consult the Coal Authority at any future stages of the scheme. This letter can be used as evidence for the legal and procedural consultation requirements. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss this matter further.
