I have received a copy of the Scoping Opinion issued by Derbyshire County Council Planning Department to Provectus on 12 March 2012. This document is:
Consideration by the Council as Mineral Planning Authority of a formal request made by CJS Planning, as agent for Provectus, for a Scoping Opinion about the issues to be considered in an Environmental Statement to accompany an intended planning application to extract coal by surface mining methods at Hill Top Farm, Clay Cross.
The document spells out all the issues that the Planning Authority expects Provectus to address in its planning application.
As this document does not appear to be available on the DCC site I am making a copy available. Click here to see the Scoping Opinion.
