A hearing on the proposed coal mine at Whitehaven, which was due to have happened on Friday 22 February, was postponed. The new date appears to be Tuesday 19 March.

South Lakes Action on Climate Change is among the organisations that have objected to the proposal.

A web page has been set up, which will be updated with details of any protests planned for the day, and it also includes SLACC’s letter of objection and more information about the proposal.
