WCM Project Update – December 2022

Woodhouse Colliery Planning Application

West Cumbria Mining is delighted with the decision of the Secretary of State to formally approve the Woodhouse Colliery planning application.

The decision of the Secretary of State, which is supported by the Planning Inspector following on from last year’s planning inquiry, means the project can now move forwards to deliver the world’s first net zero mine supplying the critical steel industry with a high-quality metallurgical coal product.

We look forward to taking the project to the next stage of delivery and jobs creation and thank all of those in West Cumbria and across Britain who have supported the project throughout.

WCM will issue further statements and updates in the near future.
