Mineral rights issue for Broughton Moor dump developers

The people behind the planned redevelopment of Broughton Moor’s former RNAD depot are hoping that issues over mineral rights will not hold up the project.

Have your say

For all those who want an opencast mine, how long will it be before anything can be built upon the reinstated land?

Come on, start thinking more than old industrial working. Leave all the dirty stuff to them lot darn sarf. They were the ones who wanted all the mines closed. Let them have the dirt!

Get it opencasted then there's a clean piece of paper to develop it into this " utropia " thing that will be of no use whatsoever to the local population , too many people goin around wid there eyes shut ???

To all of you saying opencasting will bring in jobs, how many do you think will be created by this massive development project? Not to mention those postitions that will be permanent as opposed to the opencast scheme, which will employ people for a few years then close leaving nothing behind.

Open cast coal mine for the site would clear the area of subsidence from old BELL PITS that are not recorded.These BELL PITS were found by previous open cast close-by in the 70's. COAL MINING was in progress hundreds of years ago without records.That makes it unsafe by law and foundations to build.

putting a opencast mine on the dump is a good idea, apart from all the lorry traffic, an opencast mine would clear all the rubbish, once the hole has been dug dump all the rubbish into it would save a lot of time and effort! as long as the roads are repaired after it is worked out of course!

Open casting would be a nightmare for any/all the residents in the area, not to mention the complete annihilation of the wildlife that is inhabiting the area, when would be re-instated as a rubble strewn barren piece od ground. The Utropia project is a great idea and one that deserves to go ahead. Why must it be all about money, which wouldn't stay in the area anyway.

Airy fairy leisure proposals or real money making from open cast. Let the ground be cleared by Kier and then think about what can be done with the reinstated land. The present plans have involved everyone donning rose coloured spectacles to view the Costa da Broughton Moor, never mind good green land being put to housing because the dump is contaminated, I hope the council is not throwing more money after the money wasted on the Cloffocks now it has discovered a hidden cache.
