A fantastic decision by the Secretary of State who last Friday informed us that the opencast mine WOULD NOT be given approval!!!!!
Save Druridge would like to thank all of our supporters who have helped us raise money to enable us to have our own legal team and expert witnesses to fight Banks Mining at the Public Inquiry. We would also like to thank all of those people who have given up their time to support us in helping with events and attending meetings. Last but not least we would like to thank both Friends of the Earth both locally and nationally together with The Green Party for standing with us in our fight.
We now have to wait a further 6 weeks to see whether Banks Mining will appeal the decision taken by the Secretary of State which will take us to 4th May. Fingers crossed this doesn’t happen.
