UK COAL plc: AN ALTERNATIVE REPORT
This report reviews the recent history of UK Coal plc’s mining operations and details the overall estimated accumulated losses it has accrued in this area of its activities between 2000 and 2008. Attention then switches to a critical assessment of UK Coal’s representation of its land bank being mainly ‘brownfield’ land. Lastly, after presenting three case studies that show UK Coal’s attempts to develop its land often meets serious and sometimes successful resistance from local communities the report reaches a number of conclusions.
