Petition to Welsh Government asking them to make their MTAN2 recommendations mandatory in Welsh planning law.

 

Hi All.
I'm looking for support for a petition a small anti opencast group from Varteg, Pontypool has started to Welsh Gov asking them to make their MTAN2 recommendation for a 500m buffer zone around opencast mines mandatory in Welsh planning law. This action would sterilise 66% of the Welsh coalfield according to the Coal Authorities figures and would be a precedent to other governments to value the local populations who live around mineral extraction. 
Could I  ask you to help spread the petition through you networks?
