惠特比。創建礦工村的申請被放棄

將惠特比附近的一個大篷車公園改造成供約400名礦工居住的臨時村莊的計劃,在一片反對聲中被放棄了。

提交給當局的文件說,英美資源集團正在尋求同意用帶有太陽能電池板的雙人小木屋來取代大篷車公園的189個停車位,以及福利房。

然而,根據地方民主報告服務,一封反對該規劃申請的信說。"我們的道路已經夠繁忙了,沒有這些來來往往的人,相信這不會給人們和野生動物帶來風險,這絕對是荒謬的。"

另一個人聲稱,礦區已經 "像黑池一樣燈火通明,把所有的野生動物都趕走了",而其他人則說這將破壞 "一個美麗、寧靜的村莊的平衡"。

英美資源集團發言人Matthew Parsons在宣布撤回申請的決定時說。"在最近幾個月與當地社區廣泛接觸後,我們考慮了所有的反饋意見,並決定撤回我們對Ladycross房車公園的規劃申請,並探索其他選擇。

Esk Valley和Coast部門的議員Clive Pearson歡迎該公司決定在當地反對的情況下,尋找其他地方安置其建築工人。

目前正在進行沉井工作,這些沉井將延伸到北海之下。該礦將生產多鹵石,一種用作農業肥料的鉀肥。

Plans to transform a caravan park near Whitby into a temporary village for about 400 miners have been abandoned following an outcry.

Documents lodged with the authority said Anglo American was seeking consent for two-person cabins, with solar panels, in place of the 189 pitches on the caravan park, as well as welfare lodges.

However, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service, one letter objecting to the planning application said: "Our roads are busy enough as it is without these comings and goings, it's absolutely absurd to believe this won't add a risk to people and wildlife."

Another claimed that the mine area was already "lit up like Blackpool, driving all wildlife away", while others said it would ruin "the equilibrium of a beautiful, peaceful village".

Announcing the decision to withdraw the application, Anglo American spokesman Matthew Parsons said: "Having engaged extensively with the local community in recent months, we have considered all the feedback and have decided to withdraw our planning application for the Ladycross Caravan Park and explore other options."

Esk Valley and Coast division councillor Clive Pearson welcomed the firm's decision to look elsewhere to accommodate its construction workforce given the level of local opposition.

Work is under way to sink shafts which will extend under the North Sea. The mine will produce polyhalite, a form of potash for use as an agricultural fertiliser.
