Lignite Moratorium doesn't apply in Crumlin


By way of a quick information update.

As many of you are aware the plan to resume lignite mining in Crumlin is progressing.  The planning application was submitted last May and is under consideration.  A number of people have submitted objections.

Planning Services have confirmed that the province wide moratorium on lignite exploration does not apply in Crumlin, so it will not prevent the mine from going ahead.

An example of one rule for North Antrim (and everyone else for that matter) and another for Crumlin and Glenavy?

CALNI has repeatedly emphasized the potential links between the site selected for the incinerator and the Crumlin lignite deposit.

See my earlier post.
