The Directors of Sirius Minerals Plc (AIM: SXX, OTCQX: SRUXY) ("Sirius" or the "Company") are pleased to provide an update on the holding objection submitted by the Ministry of Defence to the York Potash Project planning application.
Following a meeting with representatives from the Ministry of Defence ("MoD") and RAF Fylingdales the Company has been informed that the MoD is minded to remove its holding objection to the York Potash planning application. This will occur following the successful agreement of planning conditions between the MoD, the North York Moors National Park Authority ("NYMNPA") and the Company which will allow for an on-going programme of monitoring to ensure no impact on the important facility.
The Company has been informed during its recent meeting with the MoD that it intends to agree these conditions in advance of a planning decision for the mine planning application, which is due to be made by the NYMNPA on 2 July 2013.
Chris Fraser, Managing Director and CEO of Sirius, commented:
"We welcome the MoD's intention to remove the objection following the submission of extra technical information showing that RAF Fylingdales will not be affected by the York Potash Project impact.
"Planning conditions are a sensible way to ensure important consultees are given comfort on our on-going commitment to the issues they raise, without incurring unnecessary delays."
Well said KayP!! I totally agree with you.. I have never posted and probably rarely will, (due to the some of the drivel I have to read) but I do read a selected few (you know who you are) and really appreciate all the good quality posts that SOME people go to the effort to produce. I simply KNOW this is going to get permission and KNOW the project WILL be successful. I live fairly locally, as far as I am concerned MOST people in the area WANT this to go ahead and to back my feelings up, almost all of my deposit on a house is invested in this which is a very decent 5 figure sum!! So there you go! That's my first post done!! My first and probably last post, unless I decide to post EVERY day saying THIS WILL WORK! and tell everyone to ignore the doubters. I will keep reading but will very rarely post unfortunately.. Good luck everyone involved in this!
