At a Regulatory Committee held earlier today by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council (“RCBC”), councillors unanimously resolved to grant permission for the York Potash mine and mineral transport system (“MTS”) planning application.
The remaining key applications are: that part of the 'straddling application' for the mine and MTS which has been submitted to the North York Moors National Park Authority; the materials handling facility application, which has been submitted to RCBC; and the application for the harbour facilities which has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate.
Chris Fraser, Managing Director and CEO of Sirius, commented:
“We are delighted with the positive decision from Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council for this substantial part of the Project and look forward to further progress with our other applications.
“The application is a significant part of the overall approvals required for the delivery of the Project and an important step forward for Sirius.”Back to news archive
