We are at the earliest stages in Dewley Hill’s development and we will be assessing the area over the next few months to better understand the site. You may have heard about a surface mine at Dewley Hill in the past. We’ve worked really hard to look again at those plans and bring forward a new scheme with significant improvements from previous versions. The design of the mine and the plans for restoration will be developed in partnership with the local community and you will have an opportunity to influence these.
