The dangers of historic Coal Mining activities are dramatically highlighted each year with an average of 15 mine shaft collapses annually. Headlines show photographs of collapsed roads, buildings and large chasms, which suddenly appear, raising concern for nearby residents and properties.
If you are planning a new development, extending a property or buying land or a new home, it is essential to understand exactly what you are buying or building on.
Earth Environmental & Geotechnical have completed many Coal Mining Risk Assessments for residential, commercial and industrial properties which include an assessment of the Coal Authority Mining Report, a visit to the offices of the Coal Authority to assess mining plans, a review of modern and historical published geological maps and review of technical reports/memoirs.
If your site is in a Development High Risk Area you will need to submit a Coal Mining Risk Assessment to your Local Planning Authority. Earth Environmental & Geotechnical can help you get a clear understanding of the steps you need to take from the initial Coal Mining Risk Assessment Service to proposed mitigation strategy to show that the site can be made safe and stable for the development being proposed.
If you need advice on your development land or property purchase you can call our Mineshaft and Sinkhole helpline.
The Mineshaft and Sinkhole helpline is here to provide advice for
- Property Developers
- Project Managers
- Construction Firms
- Local Authorities
- House Buyers
