What concerns me is the new way of coal mining called fracking!!   As far as I've been told the councils can go ahead with this, which is very frighting seeing it's very close to properties ?? We need to keep a very close eye on this the MP's will not care as they or the councils will be paid vast amounts of money. Our health is at stake the chemicals can poison the water that we drink and can cause cancer.

When the company applied to extract coal by open cast mining it failed to mention extraction above the
application belongs to the National Coal Board.
The way that it can circumvent this is by applying for its limited amount, and then apply for a
further extraction.
On the original application it was to extract coal in trenches from Poynton all the way to Disley and I have no doubt that this is what would happen if it reapplied today.
