The group was formed in October 2008 to oppose any plan UK coal plc put forward to develop an opencast mine one mile long by half a mile wide between Measham and Swepstone in Leicestershire. Now, 17 months on we are still fighting this proposal which has yet to be determined by Leicestershire County Council.
This is the third Research Report we have produced. The others are:
Research Report No 1“Coal, Collusion and Communities”
Research Report No 2“UK Opencast / Surface Mined Coal, Its Role in Providing UK Energy Security”
All the information about our campaign, including free downloadable copies of all of our reports, newsletters and press releases are available from either of these web sites:
