WCM recognises the value of the knowledge of the local people, about mining history and their local environment, and would like to involve the local community as much as possible.

WCM has give everyone who has an opinion on the mine the opportunity to share that with us. Many large-scale public open days have been held, as well as smaller drop in sessions with the team based in Whitehaven. Feedback forms have been issued at past events, with the results being overwhelmingly positive and demonstrating that the majority of people attending are in favour of the mine because of the potential for improvements in the local economy and employment prospects. WCM created a Statement of Community Involvement which has recently been updated to include feedback from the events, along with Newsletters and comments from the community.
