    Breaking news Bellway homes are in a coal heap of trouble after new findings Balderstone Hall Field Mirfield…

    Taken from information provided by the consultant who carried out the percolation testing on the proposed site and hit a prenatal mine shaft bad luck or what…

    In addition to the above, made ground was encountered in one trial pit (SW08) from a surface to >2.9m comprising Reworked Natural Ground (orangish brown and grey sandy gravel of sandstone and coal with rare red brick). The trial pit collapsed when excavating below 2.5m. the bottom of the made ground was never stated. coal with rare red brick Both these elements can only be consistent with a working mine shaft.

    I HAVE reported a potential mine shaft  hazard, to the Coal Authority However, this is complicated as the hazard is located on land with a live application for 60 plots

    What does this mean? after many years of research, one of three potential mine shafts as now been located within the proposed site

    • SW08 mine shaft located on site one of three existing mine shafts evidence of the material they found in the hole being ‘Rare Red Brick and Coal’. Both these elements can only be consistent with a working mine shaft. New information
    • Capping and grouting will happen
    • The existing probe hole grid produced by the consultant does not conclude the extended reach of the coal working, and does not identify all coal working risk areas.
    • Envireau Water coal working map provide the grid of the Probe hole’s only, from this map it is quite easy to identify MORE probe holes are required to the bulk of the proposed plots.
    • The information I have provided in earlier comments provides proof that the worked coal seams are thicker than stated and the 10m role as being ignored.

    Fantastic huge historical news for Mirfield and Yorkshire sub-circular anomaly (Anomaly E1) adjacent to one of the enclosure responses, which is approximately 16 m across. This response is either related to a circular feature (such as a large roundhouse or barrow)

    Message sent this evening by email to the case officer…

    Matthew I find myself at a loss as to the way this application has been steered “Managed” this application as become extremely disjointed and inconsiderate of the full facts, with miss fit information and consultants being asked to consult “Melanie Lindsley consultant for the Coal Authority” before all information is available (disingenuous comes to mind)

    Matthew your theatre of this application must terminate at some point? can you give a date has to when the developer will finish their additional information which should conclude their application this will allow I and others to finalise our objection summaries?  At the end of the day, it is the localised residents what will be affected by this none sustainable application… Mathew keep in mind our right to object on a decent timescale NOT 2 WEEKS.

    This application has become very dangerous and the likely hood of misinterpretation of the facts and the information is apparent this will lead to a none decision. The application should be pulled and re-started at a later date with refreshed information under a new application.
