Surface Coal Mining Visual Register

The Council receives and determines planning applications for surface coal mining. These applications are dealt with by the Planning Authority under the Town & Country Planning (Scotland) Acts.

The surface coal mining planning application Visual Register illustrates the status of current and historic sites in the following categories:

  • surface coal mining
  • operational sites
  • current planning application sites 
  • sites with permission
  • sites under restoration/restored
  • operational rail disposal sites
  • haul routes

We have also produced a map showing the cumulative land use in East Ayrshire of wind farms, opencast, quarries and landfill sites

If you require further information on a particular site please use the link to search planning applications in East Ayrshire where you can view plans and documents that relate to the relevant site.
