The planning application for West Cumbria Mining’s Woodhouse Colliery has now been validated, and has been allocated the reference number 4/17/9007.   If you would like to support or raise any concerns about the Project, it is important that you do so by 10th July 2017 for your opinion to be considered by Cumbria County Council.

Today the County Council are hand-delivering neighbour notifications as well as posting site notices in local parish noticeboards as well as attaching signs to Marchon fence/gates, and at fences/gates along footpaths adjacent to the Marchon and Pow Beck areas.

Below are a number of ways in which people can give comment on the planning application.
