North York Moors National Park Authority: Second public meeting on proposed potash mine

A York Potash presentation to National Park Authority members at The Raven Hall Hotel in Ravenscar on Friday (September 28) is now fully booked.

Due to the considerable local interest, a second public meeting will take place at the Authority’s offices at The Old Vicarage, Bondgate, Helmsley YO62 5BP at 1.30pm on October 11.

The Ravenscar meeting is for York Potash to explain its proposals and answer questions from the Authority’s Members.

The Authority has asked York Potash to repeat its presentation on October 11. The mining company will outline the development of a proposed new potash mine on land at Dove’s Nest Farm/ Haxby Plantation near Whitby.

In addition, the Authority will give a report of the September 28 meeting.

Please contact Fiona Farnell at the National Park Authority on 01439 772700 or email f.farnell@northyorkmoors.org.uk, if you wish to attend.

A planning application for the proposed new potash mine has not yet been submitted and no decisions will be made by the Authority at the pre-application presentation.

The Authority is also attending a series of Parish Council meetings in October in order to outline the process for dealing with the York Potash application, answer queries and listen to local views on the proposals. These meetings are being held at Sneaton, Fylingdales, Sleights and Hawsker.

Once a planning application has been submitted there will be a period of statutory consultation with key stakeholders and local communities. The Authority will organise further events at that stage to provide information about the proposals and ensure that all interested parties have the opportunity to comment.
