At today’s meeting of Cornwall Council’s Strategic Planning Committee, Mebyon Kernow councillors championed two planning applications from Western United Mines to allow the company to mine at South Crofty. The applications were to build and install modern facilities at the mine and also to extend underground working.
MK councillor Neil Plummer (Stithians) proposed that both applications be approved and Cllr Stuart Cullimore (Camborne – see above) was also present and backed the applications. Both of our councillors were passionate in speeches about the importance of the mine to the local area, the potential wealth that could be created at the site and the good quality jobs that would be generated.
Stuart Cullimore has rightly described the decision to allow the planning consents to be fantastic.
