All, thanks for the acknowledgements for the notes, since the completion of the coring drilling and the opening of doves nest there's not a lot to see or do from the road in my opinion. So I have become self imposed redundant plus as more local people have come on board we get pretty regular updates from other sources as well as the co. itself In my opinion the site is in a very unobtrusive position already without the implementation of the Bunds and tree planting. Its on a relatively quiet b class road B1416 and with only two prominent scenic view points in the vicinity. One is North of the site and views to the North just off the B1416 The other Blue Bank is on the A169 and is North West of the site and looks East but the site is hidden by the lie of the land. I have personally tried to view the site from every available angle from the road and while the site can definitely be made out if you know what your looking for from the A171 it is realistically so far in the distance that from the road it is unobtrusive. As an aside we are half way through the Year in the Guest House trade here in Scarborough and not one of our guests since its very first mention in the papers or TV programs has asked about the new potash mine. This includes last weekend when we had a group of 14 walkers who were doing a sponsored walk from Whitby to Filey part of the Cleveland Way in aid of the Help For Heroes campaign. One other thing I missed off yesterday is that the first thing you see on entering the town council hall is the full collection of folders with the submitted planning application, these are readily available for any person who calls in. Looking forward to the 100 club meeting...its creeping up on us. ATB
The processing and export plant at Wilton will not need planning permission as the complex is subject to a blanket planning authority from 1946, which allows chemical type developments within the complex without planning permission, there will only be the need for an environmental assessment.
The pipeline will probably come under strategic infrastructure planning, and as there are precedents of pipelines already running through the area, certainly as far as Boulby, the only contentious route would be from the Boulby area to Sneaton, which as it is generally following the existing road, would seem unlikely to cause any problems.
I would not expect any problems with the pipeline planning apart from the usual requirement to investigate any archaelogical and enviromentally sensitive sites etc they bump into in construction, most of the known ones will have already been skirted around during the desktop and field surveys before the final route was chosen.
