Members of the North York Moors National Park Authority have resolved to grant permission for the Project's mine and mineral transport system planning application subject to the finalisation of the Section 106 Agreement and final wording of conditions. Members made the decision at yesterday's special planning committee meeting at Sneaton Castle, Whitby.
Chris Fraser, Managing Director and CEO of Sirius, said:
"This is really just the beginning for the Company - we have made a major step forward and now have a clear pathway to reaching production.
"We are grateful to the members of the Authority for their positive consideration of the application and we thank our many loyal supporters, investors and customers for their patience in helping us to get to this stage.
"The case for the Project has always been compelling because it will not only generate so many jobs and economic benefits, but also because it is accompanied by such extensive mitigations, safeguards and environmentally sensitive design. We now look forward to delivering it."Back to news archive
