Detail

The coal mining development risk plan shows the boundaries of high risk (dark-hatched) and lower risk (lighter-hatched) coalfield areas. This information helps determine the need to [submit a coal mining risk assessment](https://whitehall-admin.production.gov.uk//s:

  • mine entries with potential zone of influence
  • past surface hazards
  • past shallow coal mine workings
  • mine gas
  • probable shallow coal mine workings
  • geological features (fissures and break lines)
  • workable coal seam outcrops
  • surface (opencast) mining

The surface coal resource plan shows the areas of surface coal resources where extraction of the coal can be carried out by surface mining methods.
