The Coal Authority Consultants Coal Mining Report


Advanced coal mining insight

Why this report?

  • While the CON29M report provides initial understanding of coal mining impact, it does not meet the requirements of a more detailed geotechnical analysis and site history for your developer clients.

  • Being able to characterise the site and it’s surrounding area means more context, improved visualisation and better risk assessment.

  • The Consultants Coal Mining Report pinpoints significant past coal mining activity or coal mining legacy management, which could have significant impact on your client’s site.


Designed by environmental consultants and geotechnical engineers, this report provides essential data and guidance on historical coal mining activity and the potential issues that could affect your clients sites and surrounding area.

What does it cover?

  • Recorded and probable coal mining activity.
  • Coal mining geology.
  • Licencing and future mining activity.
  • Investigations and remedial activity.
  • Mine water treatment schemes.
  • Coal authority managed tips.

How do I order a report?

How do I download a report?

All reports will be delivered by email to the designated email address. If necessary, you are also able to include an additional email address before placing your order. However, if the file is too big for email, a download link will be emailed to you. Alternatively, you can download any report from your Order History.

How do I cancel a report?

Cancelling an order ‘in progress’ can be dealt with via your Groundsure account. If the order you wish to cancel is already complete, please contact us and the team will advise you on our cancellation policy.

What does 'Order in Progress' mean?

Order in progress is a status we assign when your report or data is being produced. You will receive your product within the defined turnaround time. If you order states “with Groundsure”, this is because you have submitted your order with a site plan and we are working on digitising your site boundary, or because the site drawn exceeds our standard pricing options. Orders will be placed within 24 hours, and a member of the team will be in contact if we require further information. If you order states “On Hold”, this is because one of our environmental consultants has raised a query with your order. This query will have been emailed to you.
