No more coal - from Glan Lash or anywhere

Published: 31 Aug 2023

Friends of the Earth Cymru stand in solidarity with residents and campaigners against the proposal to extend Glan Lash coal mine. We will be joining them outside the Carmarthenshire Council offices before the planning meeting.

Carmarthenshire County Council will decide whether to allow more coal to be mined at Glan Lash at the next planning committee meeting on 14 September.

If approved, up to 95,000 tonnes more coal could be extracted from the mine! Extending the mine also threatens the delicate ecology and precious wildlife of the surrounding area, especially the Caeau Mynydd Mawr Special Area of Conservation.

We must keep coal in the ground where it belongsAnd focus on cleaner greener energy and creating sustainable green jobs in Carmarthenshire instead.
