Drax Re-power

Received 02 August 2018
From The Coal Authority


I have reviewed the proposals and checked the site location plan against our coal mining information and can confirm that, whilst the proposed development site falls within the coalfield, it is located outside of the defined Development High Risk Area, meaning that there are no recorded coal mining legacy hazards at shallow depth that could pose a risk to land stability that would need to be considered as part of this proposal.

Accordingly, the Coal Authority has no comments or observations to make on this consultation.
