Campaign group granted permission for judicial review of Whitehaven coal mine

A Cumbrian campaign group have been granted permission for a judicial review of Cumbria County Council’s decision to allow a deep coal mine to be built.

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole (KCCH), are challenging Cumbria County Council’s Development Control and Regulation Committee’s decision to grant planning permission for a major coal mine on the former Marchon Chemical Works site in Whitehaven, Cumbria.

The judicial review will be heard at the High Court in Manchester on a date yet to be set.
