Welsh Government are seeking views on the new White Paper outlining proposals for the future management of coal tips in Wales.
Researchers from Welsh universities, supported by Bath and Warwick, have provided advice to Welsh Government officials through Platform facilitated workshops.
The proposals aim to introduce a consistent approach to the management, monitoring, and oversight of disused coal tips. Welsh Government are consulting on:
- a new legislative management regime for monitoring and maintaining disused coal tips; and
- establishment of a new public body to ensure compliance with and consistent delivery of a new management regime.
There is still time for you to have your say as the closing date for consultation responses is the 4th August. Details of the White Paper can be found here: https://gov.wales/coal-tip-safety-wales-white-paper
