Code of Practice for Minewater Treatment Schemes agreed between the Planning Officers Society and The Coal Authority.
To treat minewater can involve the establishment of simple reed beds to more substantial treatment plants. To assist the implementation of these necessary facilities and to clarify the appropriate procedures this Code of Practice has been prepared jointly between the Coal Authority (CA) and the Planning Officers Society (POS) primarily for Mineral Planning Authorities (MPAs) within the coalfield areas, but will be of interest to other Local Planning Authorities (LPAs).
The Code of Practice seeks to provide a framework for a closer working relationship between the CA and planning authorities in bringing forward minewater treatment schemes.
