I have today contacted Helmsley with a view of obtaining the address where the meeting will be held and also the number of seats available to the public at that venue. The good lady on the end of the line said that the date and the place for where the York Potash application will be held has not yet been determined, and to keep an eye on the website link "previous post" as it will be added during a future update.
...has a very good article on p7 of the Business Section under the heading "Mine could help feed world and our appetite for growth" by Barry Dodd CBE, Chairman of the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) singing the praises of this 'important step in the future of the region' and that 'Concealed shafts means that the mining process can take place without putting the moors above at risk...'
"I cannot believe that a bridge 80 feet high (In old money) will easily get PP...."Dormanstown" bridge on the A 1058 ....I assume but don't take for granted, given previous mistakes, that this route has been considered and discounted! "
Apparently and somewhat ironically its the R&CBC who are insisting that they don't want this conveyor at low level because of flood risk. From the EIA description, alternatives, sec 3.4:
"Alternative alignments for the conveyor system 3.4.16 A total of 10 alignments for the overland conveyor were considered prior to selecting the preferred route. Four of the 10 options considered would travel underneath existing infrastructure, whilst the remaining six options would travel over infrastructure. 3.4.17 Consultation with RCBC identified that the Sembcorp Utility corridor has a significant flood risk (Class 3 risk). It is considered that additional tunnels (which would be required to install options one to four) would increase flood ingress risk; such a risk was not acceptable to RCBC (in principal) and therefore options one to four were dismissed on technical grounds."
No Golden Plover, no Avocet spotted in the Lagoon or the Gut. Mr Barber* did spot some Red Breasted Merganser - mind you I'm not sure I'd want to meet one of them, I'm imagining a Rockin' Robin on steroids with a machete:
Still sounds very generous. I am sure a more realistic tunnel will be built 4.5m-5m diameter, and that would significantly reduce spoil. The point I was making was the approach to put in worst case scenarios may back fire.
