The Secretary of State is currently considering requests to revoke the planning permission, granted on 3 June 2015, for surface coal mining at the Bradley site. These requests are being considered in the light of the current policy on revocation. I am therefore unable to comment on any aspects of this proposal as to do so is likely to be prejudicial. As a decision is reached however the Secretary of State will take into account the matters raised in the requests, including those set out in your correspondence of 1 March. A decision will be issued shortly.
