Support Cramlington Residents Against Mining sign now

The mineral extraction and augur mining scheme at Shotton (Cramlington) affects all of us and we wish to object to the application (Ref. 04/00244/CCMEIA.)

I do not support any change to the Northumberland County Minerals Plan Policy which clearly states this and other areas are opencast constraint areas, i.e. NO OPENCASTING.

I view the loss of Greenbelt also as a fundamental departure from Structure Plan Policy.

I see no tangible benefit demonstrated by a Landform Park which is in no measure within walking distance for all Cramlington, or meeting any need.

I have not been consulted over the 342 Hectare site and the 9 million tonnes to be extracted over 10 years.

I object to the huge loss of landscape that will remove the view of Cheviot for over 10 years and visually blight the whole area.

I am not convinced the claim for the coal as low sulphur coal is valid, or that 5 million tonnes will guarantee employment at Alcan as claimed.

A recent Newspaper article states claims that dust is not a concern to health but remains a real fear.

I therefore formally object to the application.
