Book update: Coal mining

Chapter 10 Extractive industries.

Section 10.8.1 Case study from Wales, UK.

The case study examined a successful community led HIA of an opencast coal mining proposal in Wales. The outcome was in marked contrast to another, unsuccessful, community led objection to the Ffos-y-fran mine, on the outskirts of Merthyr Tydfil. For adverse comment see the artice by George Monbiot “A vast new opencast pit will ruin local people’s lives and wreck the government’s climate change policies. How was it allowed to happen?”  here.
