For over 20 years, the Coal Authority has been managing the effects of past coal mining to protect the public and the environment. Past coal mining activity can still cause problems for home owners, planners and developers as there are over 172,000 recorded mine entries on Britain’s coalfields and 130,000 properties lie within 20 metres of at least one mine entry. The Coal Authority’s award winning engineering solutions help to manage this long term legacy. Their experts also provide an extensive range of products and services to help
customers better understand mining risks. Managing the safety issues that have resulted from years of historical coal mining requires specialist knowledge. The specialists at the Coal Authority deliver a portfolio of work that includes resolving the impacts of ground movement, the collapse of mine shafts and mine workings, mine gas emissions and mine water discharges.
