  • The importance of this case is the core environmental concern about open cast mining. Will the mining companies have terms which enforce the return of land to food production or as is this case will the bill have to be picked up by the hard pressed taxpayer. This dodging of environmental responsibility by the mining companies via the apparent absence of critical contractual terms and conditions (we presume the councils requested these) has implications for other ventures of this kind Hydrological Fracturing/open cast et al. It becomes a matter of trust. That is the public will never trust a planning application which portends to return the land to its natural condition. Needless to say the absence of such critical terms and conditions will have a substantial impact on the viability of such land to produce crops and/or sustain wildlife. Arem't food prices high enough. We can only hope that any monies repatriated will be employed in restitution. More work to do on unravelling this me thinks!
