Coal tip safety


The UK government is refusing to take responsibility for the dereliction caused by the coal industry, both private and nationalised, before Wales was given a measure of devolution. The following statement has been issued by Cardiff Bay:

The Welsh Government is consulting on proposals for a new legislative management regime for disused coal tips in Wales. This includes proposals for a new supervisory authority. The proposals aim to ensure a consistent approach to the management, monitoring, and oversight of disused coal tips. The framework could also be applied in the future to other spoil tips in Wales. Find out more at online public events on June 9 and July 6. The consultation is open until Thursday August 4 at the following link:
