Householder Applications in Legacy Coal Mining Areas
Maps of the affected areas in Hyndburn are available below by following the link to Coal Authority Development Referral and Standing Advice Areas or you can get an accurate assessment by going directly to the Coal Authority Interactive Viewer via the link below.
If your Householder development is in either the Low or High Risk Area you will receive an Informative Note with your Decision Notice that alerts you to the possibility of coal mining legacy issues, and of any action you may need to take.
Please inform your builder or contractors of the note. It is important that the advice on the Informative Note is followed.
