Some comments received via feedback forms from our public events:

Exciting plans for local area

Everything was answered by the staff I spoke to. Exciting times ahead for West Cumbria

Concerned about impact on A595 by extra traffic

Very informative and interesting. Very impressed. Optimistic about the future for the people and the area

I would like to see the construction and digging/boring out of the drift. I am very much interested in mining and think it’s fantastic we can now continue coal mining in Whitehaven.

A hope that future/modern developments will perpetuate heritage of mining in West Cumbria, eg Haig Museum and WCM visitor centre
