Coal Mining Development Risk Plan

The coalfield is divided into two areas referred to as High Risk and Low Risk:

  • the High Risk Area (15% of the coalfield area) is where coal mining risks are present at shallow depth which are likely to affect new development.
  • the Low Risk Area (85% of the coalfield) is where past coal mining activity has taken place at sufficient depth that it poses low risk to new development

If your site is in a Development High Risk Area you will need to submit a Coal Mining Risk Assessment to your Local Planning Authority, to support your planning application.

Use the Coal Authority's interactive map viewer to understand if a Coal Mining Risk Assessment needs to be submitted.

In order to ensure that the most up-to-date data is accessible for members of the public, the individual PDF plans showing high and low risk areas, specific risks and surface coal resources are no longer available.

Coal Mining Specific Risk Plan

The Development High Risk Area contains 8 coal mining risks.

These specific risks are:

  • 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

Surface Coal Resource Plan

This plan illustrates the areas of Surface Coal Resources within each Local Planning Authority (LPA) administrative area. There is a need to ensure that mineral resources are not needlessly sterilised by new surface development. If LPAs fail to safeguard these resources, this may leave insufficient supplies for future generations.
