Fees for Surface Coal Mining Regulations guidance

Executive Summary

The Town and Country Planning (Fees for Monitoring Surface Coal Mining Sites)(Scotland) Regulations 2017 introduced new provision for planning authorities to be paid a fee for monitoring surface coal mining sites.

Surface coal mining sites are typically subject to a number of detailed conditions and associated legal agreements, aimed at controlling potentially negative impacts on neighbouring communities and the environment. Effective monitoring of a site and the conditions that are attached to it is vital, in order to ensure that on-going operations are in line with the planning permission and conditions.
