Woodhouse Colliery: has a pre-application submission been made?

Marianne Birkby made this Freedom of Information request to Marine Management Organisation

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Marine Management Organisation,

West Cumbria Mining have said that "we may not need a licence from the Marine Management Organisation" to mine for coal under the Irish Sea in an area of multiple conservation protections.

Has a pre-application submission been made by West Cumbria Mining for Woodhouse Colliery?

If this is the case I request sight of:

1. Pre-application submission/s from West Cumbria Mining
2. All Replies from the Marine Management Organisation to West Cumbria Mining

Yours faithfully,

Marianne Birkby

Dear Ms Birkby,

 

Further to your request below, I have been advised by our Marine Licensing
team that they believe your query may relate to the Cumbria Coking Coal
Project.

 

To view the documents relating to this you can check the [1]Public
Register under an advanced search and enter 'West Cumbria Mining' in the
applicant name search box. The eight results all appear to relate to the
same project. If you have any further queries following the search please
do not hesitate to contact us.

 

Kind regards,

 

Susan Davidson
