Coal Authority Publishes Latest Annual Report and Accounts
July 11, 2018
The UK’s Coal Authority has published its Annual Report and Accounts for 2017-18, which sets out its key activities over the year.
According to the report, over the last year the Coal Authority has worked to:
grow its customer base, diversify its income and make significant progress in saving costs through innovation,
adapt and respond to major events, including flooding, and significant subsidence events,
enable a mining reports market, and seen competition develop in line with its business plan,
respond to its customers’ needs, launching a new report for consultants and conveyancers,
develop its mine related services to enable those in government, infrastructure and development sectors to manage risk and cost,
support the development of ochre, a by-product of its mine water treatment, as a fine art product, and
engage with water industry partners to examine various opportunities for water including co-treatment, supply and drought alleviation.
In addition, it has contributed to the delivery of the UK’s Industrial Strategy by adopting solar power at some of its mine water treatment schemes and by evaluating the clean energy potential stored in the mine workings.
According to the Coal Authority, its next plan is an evolution of the strategy it has followed over the last five years. It balances a strong focus on core operational delivery to keep people safe and improve environments impacted by the UK’s mining legacy with a continued clear focus on innovation and continuous improvement. It says that this will enable it to reduce costs to the taxpayer, support and develop our people and ensure we sustain the specialist skills it needs to deliver for the future.
