Coal Mining & Aftercare
The majority of the land was previously opencast mined for coal and has now been restored to agricultural use. We understand that restoration of the land was signed off by the Mineral Planning Authority on 28 April 2015. The land was then subject to a 5-year statutory Aftercare Management period which ran from 21 April 2015 to 21 April 2020. Following the Aftercare Management period the land is to be managed in line with the Habitat Management Plan for a further period of 10 years; to 21 April 2030. A copy of both the approved Aftercare Management Plan (Restoration and Aftercare Strategy), the approved Habitat Management Plan and the unilateral obligation are available from Fisher German. All obligations under the Aftercare Management Plan, Habitat Management Plan and unilateral obligation will be passed to the purchasers. We are aware that a portion of Lot 1 has previously been landfilled and understand that this activity ceased in the 1980s. Further details supplied by the Environment Agency are available from Fisher German - see the data room access information below.
