wales government planning – an effective ban on new coal mines

BBC 5th Dec 2018 An effective ban on new coal mines in Wales getting planning permission isto come into effect. The measure is part of the Welsh Government’s new planning policy, published on Wednesday. Applications for opencast and deep-mine coal mining will only be allowed under “exceptional
circumstances”. Environment Secretary Lesley Griffiths said the policy will
ensure “we have well-designed spaces which will benefit future
generations”. It comes after the assembly passed legally-binding carbon
emissions targets on Tuesday. Planning Policy Wales governs what councils
can allow through planning permission.
